Slovakia debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest 1994 after the country failed to qualify in the prequalifier for the former Eastern Bloc countries in 1993. In their first three participations, 18th was their best placing.

After an absence of eleven years, the country returned for the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 with the song Leť tmou, which failed to make the final. The following three attempts have seen similar outcomes; however, one of their three entries, Horehronie, has become a Eurovision classic.

The country has attempted to return to the contest many times, but television ratings and financial difficulties mean that RTVS has withdrawn from the contest indefinitely.
