Popis The paper concentrates on attitudes to the enlargement and the future of EU held by relevant political parties in the Czech Republic and in Slovakia in 2002. With respect to the Czech Republic, three basic approaches to the issue of EU enlargement are identified, thus classifying the Czech political parties as consistently pro-European, pro-European with reservations and anti-European. It will be argued that in Slovakia the relevant political parties acted as consistently pro-European with the exception of the anti-European Slovak National Party (SNS) and the Communist Party of Slovakia (KSS). The dividing line was however rather between the parties whose representatives could be viewed by international partners as an obstacle to Slovakia admission to EU and the parties that were acceptable for foreign countries, which played an important role in rallying voters to opt for acceptable political subjects.
