As of January 1, 2022, informative traffic signs in Slovak towns and villages may be bilingual and use a minority language alongside Slovak, after Slovak President Zuzana Čaputová signed the relevant amendment. Currently, the names of villages are displayed in minority languages on village entry and exit signs marking the village limits, as well as on public administration buildings. Such signs are used by municipalities with at least 15% of the population belonging to an ethnic minority, if these inhabitants have declared their ethnicity in at least two successive censuses. Under the new rules, aside from entry and exit signs, individual locations in towns and villages can be displayed in minority languages as well.
