Coat of Arms of Slovakia

Slovak / Slovenčina

Slovak is a West Slavic language spoken by approximately 5 million people mainly in Slovakia. It is an official language in Slovakia, Czech Republic and the Vojvodina region of Serbia. There are smaller Slovak-speaking communities in Hungary, Russia and Ukraine where Slovak is a recognised minority language.

While documents written in Slovak started to appear in the 15th century, an accepted literary standard would have to wait until the early part of the 19th century. Slovak literature enjoyed a renaissance period between 1918 and 1938, which helped drive the standardisation of the language. Modern Slovak developed from this standardised version.

Did You Know?

Slovak is closely related to other West Slavic languages and in particular Czech. While the two languages have drifted apart since the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, they remain generally mutually intelligible.
