The end of the Little Entente is an interesting topic to investigate because there is no exact date when Czecho-Slovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia terminated their close political and economic cooperation, which had existed since the 1920s. The article deals with the reaction of the Little Entente against the Munich Agreement and describes the development in mutual relations, which (for the purpose of this text) are defined by signing new economic agreements and the mutual coordination of foreign policy against common threats. Since the represented era finds itself just several months before the outbreak of the World War II, it is necessary to describe the roles of Germany, Hungary and Poland in weakening the relations in the Little Entente. The weakening of the Little Entente was in the interest of these countries in order to achieve their political and in case of Germany geopolitical goals.The article also deals with the coordination of policies as a result of the impending Vienna Arbitration and, more importantly, the economic relations that resulted in a new trade agreement between Czechoslovakia and Romania. The main sources for this paper are documents deposited in the archive of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
