Greetings Etiquette

Normal greetings are with warm handshakes with direct eye contact. However, Slovakians are somewhat restrained in their friendliness.

It’s best to use honorifics and surnames until encouraged to use the first name.

Gift Giving Etiquette

If you receive a gift, open it as soon as it is recieved. Waiting to open the gift is a sign of rudeness.

Don’t offer calla lillies or chyrsanthemums as gifts. If you do gift flowers, they shouldn’t be wrapped in a purple ribbon. All of these are specifically for funerals.

Offer these flowers in odd numbers other than thirteen.
