Slovakia is situated in East Central Europe. The landlocked country borders to Austria in the east, the Czech Republic in north-west, Poland in north-east, Ukraine in the east, and Hungary in the south.
For administrative purposes, Slovakia is divided into eight regions (kraje), which are further subdivided into 79 districts (okresy) and just below 3000 municipalities. Elected representatives are found on regional and municipality levels.
Slovakia has 8 NUTS 3 units, 4 NUTS 2 units and 1 NUTS 1 unit. In the parliamentary elections, Slovakia has since 1998 been made up by one, national electoral district. However, the results are often reported at district level (which corresponds to the NUTS 4 level) or regional level (which corresponds to the NUTS 3 level). Prior to 1998, there were four electoral districts: Bratislavsky kraj, Zapadne Slovensko (West Slovakia), Stredne Slovensko (South Slovakia), Vychodne Slovensko (East Slovakia).These correspond to the NUTS 2 level.
