Here is a link to the Slovak Customs Act extract as provided by the US Embassy in Slovakia. Goods in a traveler's baggage are Articles 215, 216 and 217.
Cut and paste address in to search engine. Click on View as HTML when it opens. Scroll to the articles. Unless you want to read the whole Customs Act.

A few items: I never had a problem changing from 50 hz to 60 hz or
vice versa on anything from an American stove in Europe to many
electonics, cameras and laptops.
However, carefully check the inport duty! A few years ago there was a
33% import duty on electronics, making such a give prohibitively
expensive for the recipient. What import duties may be with the EU
today I cannot say.
