National celebrations of the Slovak National Uprising took place on Wednesday, 29 August at the Slovak National Uprising Memorial in Banská Bystrica. Representatives of the National Council of the Slovak Republic, the Government of SR, foreign embassies and living contemporaries paid homage to the fallen and commemorated the 74th anniversary of the uprising.
 

After the wreath-laying ceremony, State Secretary Lukáš Parízek met with the direct participants of the Slovak National Uprising to express respect and extend gratitude to them on behalf of the Ministry.
 

The Slovak National Uprising was one of the leading movements of national resistance against Nazism during World War II and empowered the European anti-fascist front. It is a significant milestone in modern Slovak history and meant a shift for the country on the way to self-determination.
