Haha, I can´t remember any, there obviously some words having different meaning, but nothing outragoeus   for example   Vedro is in SVK (Bucket) in CZE (Heat) or Topit is in SVK (d

Thank you guys for all answers !   It´s always great to learn about things from different cultures and habits, I would never have had the chance to learn otherwise

Alright, well that pretty much ruins my suggestion about how to lessen Slovakia/Slovenia confusion.

Well, if Slovakians start calling themselves Slovačko instead of Slovensko, then everything is solved. :whistle:

 

I guess this is what happens when you forget to pattent your name. I wonder who called themselves Slovensko first.

It’s not unique.  There are about a dozen groups worldwide calling themselves Gauls, Gaels, Galls or some minute variation.

Speaking of languages... I guess my most interesting language experience happened last year when we visited Slovenia. I expected there to be a bit of a language barrier, but in the end things turned out to be much more intelligible than expected...

 

We understood each other quite well, however I got a feeling that Croatian is somewhat more intelligible to Slovenians than the other way around...

Not to forget Galicia and Galicja. :evil:

 

Although this one seems quite random.

No, both of those were at one time the same Keltic people.  Also Galata in Turkey!

 

The Keltic languages were the most widespread in Europe before the Roman Empire.  Literally from Ireland to the Urals.

I imagine it was Hungary or more likely Austria, since they had to deal with them both at one time or another. :mumble:
