The period of the 2nd half of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century will be emphasized when the contacts grew stronger and headed towards the two countries becoming closer and finally creating a common state.

Activities of eminent Slovak personalities in Moravia and the Czech ones in Slovakia and migration and exchange of people, things and ideas grew stronger especially at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, in the field of culture, art, literature, and music. All this happened in the process of shaping the national identity of the Czech and Slovak nations that found its expression in ideas and tendencies of a common state – the Czechoslovak Republic.
