You might find a web service that provides that information. Check www.xmethods.com for starters...

Look in some of the Web Service provider directories. For example:

If you want to receive the data as a Web Service from a public server, you need to find a server that publishes weather data for Slovakia in XML (SOAP) format.

These are generally published in public directories such as XMethods or Microsoft's UDDI directory.

I do not know of  a service that gives you Slovakian weather information. You will have to research through Google or MSN Search or other means in your own country or maybe in a European server.

 [Update]: Here's one in XMethods that purports to deliver global weather service inmajor cities (not tested).
