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 politician and linguist Ludovit Stur (1815-1856), one of the most important representatives of the Slovak nation in the 19th century appears on the obverse. He was the leading personality among the nationally conscious youth, who later played an important part in applying the programme of Slovak national identity under his leadership. In 1843, together with Michal Miloslav Hodza and Jozef Miloslav Hurban, he established a new standard written language for the Slovaks based on central Slovak dialects. It became an integrating factor in the creation of modern Slovak national and civil society. In 1848, he presided over an assembly of Slovak patriots at Liptovsky Sväty Mikulas, where the Demands of the Slovak Nation were declared. The Slovaks demanded federalization and democratization of the Kingdom of Hungary and autonomy for Slovakia. He was one of the organizers and participants in the Slovak Uprising of 1848-1849, the first armed campaign by the Slovaks for recognition of their national identity, and for civil rights and freedoms. Reverse: The reverse bears an image of Bratislava Castle with the Baroque church of St.Nicholas and part of the tower of the Gothic Klarisky Church. The oldest plan of Bratislava - a 15th century wood engraving from the Chronica Picta - is placed in the centre. Edge: smooth
