The Slovak National Archive is the largest and most significant public archive in the Slovak Republic. Its role is to sort through, protect, professionally and scientifically process, enable access to and thus facilitate the use of archive documents, which originate from activities of the central governmental institutions of the Slovak Republic and their legal predecessors; documents with nation-wide relevance as well as documents gained by the SNA through a purchase, as a gift, or based on depository treaties. The SNA is simultaneously the main science and research, methodological and educative work-place in the field of archiving and conservation and restoration of archive documents in the Slovak Republic.
