Slovakia Life


The Slovaks are descendants of Slavic people who settled near the Danube between 400 and 500 AD. Slovaks comprise about 86 percent of the country's inhabitants; Hungarians, who constitute the largest minority group, comprise close to 11 percent; and Roma (Gypsies) represent less than 2 percent.
Small numbers of Czechs, Moravians, Silesians, Ruthenians, Ukrainians, Poles, and Germans also live in Slovakia.

About 60% of Slovaks are Roman Catholics. Protestant churches, including the Lutheran Church, the Slovak Evangelical Church, and the Reformed Christian Church, are also widely supported, and the Orthodox and Uniate churches maintain active followings among the Ruthenians and Ukrainians of Eastern Slovakia.
Most of Slovakia's Jewish community died during World War II in the Holocaust. Religion plays a major role in everyday life in Slovakia, with 73 percent of Slovaks claiming church membership.
