Slovakia/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.3 Sector breakdown

In the Slovak Republic, there are no central, detailed statistics regarding the distribution of public finances according to the purpose of their use, with regard to individual areas of culture, and types of cultural activities made at the level of regional and local self-government.

The specification of itemisation of public expenses invested in culture therefore exclusively includes the itemisation of the budget of the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic according to individual areas.
