All seven Slovak banknotes were designed by the academic painter Jozef Bubak. Their artistic conception is based on a combination of modern and traditional banknote design combined with a high level of technical protection of the banknotes against counterfeiting. The obverse sides bear portraits of the most important personalities, who were active in the territory of present-day Slovakia during more than a thousand years of history and substantially contributed to the formation of the Slovak nation. The reverse sides bear places and motifs connected with their lives and activities. An exception is the hundred crown note with the motif of the Madonna from the workshop of Master Paul of Levoca. Obverse: The motif on the obverse side is a portrait of the priest and linguist Anton Bernolak (1762-1813), one of the leading representatives of the Slovak national revival and a supporter of the Enlightenment. He gained a place in Slovak history as the first codifier of standard written Slovak - the so-called "Bernolakovcina" based on cultured western Slovak. Although Bernolak's version was not accepted as the standard written language, it represents an important milestone on the route to the formation of the modern Slovak nation. He was the instigator of the literary publication society, the Slovenske ucene tovarisstvo (Slovak Learned Society), which distributed educational books in the new codified Slovak among the Slovak public, and of the movement carried on by his successors, which lasted three generations. Reverse: The reverse bears a view of Trnava in the 18th century, with a present-day view of the symbol of the town - the Renaissance town tower - placed in the foreground. Edge: smooth
