The Slovak National Archives is the largest and the most important public archives in the Slovak Republic. Its aim is to acquire, preserve, professionally and scientifically process, and make archival documents originating from the activities of central government authorities of the Slovak Republic and its legal predecessors accessible. In addition, it provides storage of records of nation-wide importance, as well as those, acquired as gifts and purchases or as a result of deposit agreements.

At the same time, the Slovak National Archives serves as the main science research and training centre in the Slovak Republic specialising in archive studies.
