Czechs and Slovaks have rated the key events in domestic modern history, picking a wartime uprising, an anti-communist revolt and the rise of independent Slovakia. They also ranked top important personalities. Only the Velvet Revolution was chosen by both nations, the TASR newswire wrote on June 11. The other two events mentioned by Czechs were the period of the first Czechoslovak Republic (1918-1938) and the establishing of a sovereign Czech Republic in 1993.
