Brief history The University of Zilina was established on October 1, 1953 as the University of Railway Transport in Prague. In 1959 the institution changed its name to the University of Transport and moved to Zilina. Following wide-ranging changes at the beginning of the nineties, it was renamed again to the University of Zilina on November 20, 1996.
