The most important phrase for telephoning home from Slovakia is "Where is the post office" or in short "posta". In Slovakia, the post
office still has the responsibility for both telecommunications and mail. Any international call you may want to make that is more complicated than lifting any telephone receiver involves going to the local post office and
requesting the staff for their help in "calling home". In order to make yourself understood, the following section has many of the necessary phrases. But remember, you can always just use a phone booth to call and
reverse the charges by following your calling card instructions or by purchasing a pre-paid calling card in Slovakia that allows you to do the same thing.
