Transcarpathian Slovaks


The vast majority of representatives of the Slovak minority live in the Western part of Transcarpathia, namely in Uzhgorod, Mukachevsky, Perechinskomu and In the districts of the city of Velikiye Luki.Some of them are indigenous people of the region, others came here in the XVII-XIX centuries as a result of migration from the Slovak regions Hungarians. This flow of migrants accelerated after 1919, when the region was part of Czechoslovakia.

At the beginning of the XX century, more than 12 thousand Slovaks lived in Transcarpathia. In 1930, the number of Chekhov and Slovaks in our region increased to 35 thousand people.

In 1945-1947 part of the Slovak population Transcarpathia re-emigrated to the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, due to then the Slovaks left some localities completely. According to the 1959 census among the Slovaks in Transcarpathia, there are a little more than 13 thousand people.

In 2001, there were 5,695 Slovaks in Transcarpathia. Most of the Slovaks live in the city of Uzhgorod (more than 2 thousand people). The most Slovak-speaking village in the Transcarpathian region is Storozhnitsa, where almost 20% of the population speaks Slovak.

In recent years, the Slovak minority in Transcarpathia has been rapidly declining. A large number of Slovaks emigrate to Slovakia and other EU countries in search of a better life.
