The postal code (Czech poštovní směrovací číslo , Slovak poštové smerovacie číslo , abbreviation PSČ ) of the Czech Post ( Česká pošta ) and the Slovak Post ( Slovenská pošta ) consists of five digits in the form xxx yy .

The system was introduced in Czechoslovakia in 1973 and is still valid in the two successor states of the Czech Republic and Slovakia . A possible change is being discussed in Slovakia.
