Kristína represented Slovakia at the Eurovision Song Contest of 2010 with Horehronie. The song, a fan favourite composed by Martin Kavulič, was an enchanting tribute to the Horehronie mountain region in Slovakia. Performing fourth at the first Semi Final of the Oslo staged contest, Horehronie finished in sixteenth place with a total of twenty-four points. Watch her performance below:
Slovakia last participated at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012, when Max Jason Mai performed Don’t close your eyes in front of the Baku audience. Slovakia has competed at Eurovision on seven occasions, debuting in 1994 with Tublatanka. Their best result came in 1996, when Marcel Palonder’s Kým nás máš achieved an eighteenth placing at the Grand Final.
