150th Anniversary of Matica slovenská Foundation

Date of Issue : 2 August 2013

In the year of celebration of the 1000th anniversary of the arrival of Byzantine missionaries Saints Cyril and Methodius to Great Moravia (i.e. to the territory of today Slovakia), Matica slovenská was founded as the national culture organisation at the General Assembly in Turčiansky Svätý Martin on August 4, 1863.

Matica slovenská of today is a wide-spectrum organisation, cultivating science, culture, art, spare-time activities, attending to Slovaks in ethnically mixed areas and in the diaspora abroad.
