Both places are in Slovakia,

The Slovak National Archives in Bratislava and the regional archives
in Banska Bystrica, Bratislava, Bytca, Kosice, Levoca, Nitra, and Presov
accept written and e-mail requests concerning extracts, copies and search
from archival documents.
Each of the regional archives (Statny archivy) covers several areas identified
as branches [pobocka].

Inquiries directed to the National Archives will be referred to the
appropriate regional archive , which will notify the researcher,
typically in Slovak, whether records have been located . If the archive
finds the information requested, the Slovak Embassy will notify the
researcher and indicate the required fee.

You can find contact information for the national archive on the website

The matriky in the regional archives include birth, baptismal, marriage
and death records as well as tax records, deeds, charters and nobility records.
In most cases, records can now be ordered by E-mail

You may also be able to find the records you want on the Family Search
website at

I'm trying to figure out which Archives to contact for vital records
of individuals born in Brezovica nad Torysu in the 1890s: Czech,
Slovak, or > Hungarian? They are non-Jewish individuals.
