It may make more sense to place these entries in a table. --Milkmandan 04:26, 2004 Aug 21 (UTC)

You might want to move these in the List of cities in Slovakia. You can ask one of the admins if you want to delete and move instead of copy and past in order to keep the history. Unless you consider towns to be different from cities. Dori 22:26, Oct 25, 2003 (UTC)

Should the Russian name also be given? The signs for towns in Eastern Slovakia have Slovak and Russian on them. —Chris Capoccia 17:03, Jun 20, 2005 (UTC)

Of course not, this is not supposed to be a dictionary, the mentioning of German and Hungarian names has historical reasons. And they do not have "Russian" on it, but Ruthenian or Ukrainian. Juro 17:15, 20 Jun 2005 (UTC)

This is in a way strange for me. Article says that "ethnic minority represents 20% or more of the population, it has certain cultural and linguistic rights". 20%? For instance, in not so far history Klagenfurt was quite populated with Slovenes - (although in 2001 (Volkszählung 2001) according to de: wp there are 1.3% Slovenes living in the city (and even 3.3% Croats), and it is historically important to Slovenes; but I do not see any Slovene names in List of cities and towns in Austria. In Dobšiná in 2001 there were 0.63% Hungarians living in this town. Where is 20% and so forth...? --xJaM (talk) 19:15, 11 August 2010 (UTC)
I agree with XJamRastafire. New version will be without Magyar names, because alternative names are not important for English speakers. --Omen1229 (talk) 16:32, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

List of all cities and villages in Slovakia[edit]

I recently finished a (hopefully) complete list of all towns in Slovakia on the German Wiki, if somebody needs it try de:Liste der Städte und Gemeinden in der Slowakei. --murli 08:00, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Portal Slovakia.travel is official tourism portal in Slovakia. If you remove external link for these official information, I think it is not correct. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.28.83.29 (talk) 14:18, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Cities versus Towns[edit]

It should be considered and mentioned in this article that there is no Slovak vocabulary legal or otherwise that would distinguish between Cities and Towns as is done in Anglophone countries. Iswikinumber2 (talk) 05:57, 19 March 2010 (UTC)

New Tab[edit]

I suggest new tab, because current tab is obsolete. Czech republic and Hungary have good tabs. My version:

I second the new tab motion. Visually more appealing. Iswikinumber2 (talk) 19:53, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
