Most of pictures illustrate rural Slovakia and its peasants who are bearers of Slovak folk culture which is basically pagan, thus interesting for Slavdom as such. Life was different back then, everything looked more healthy for sure, just look at the peacefulness and nice Slavic traditions in Slovakia! Only when you look at these photos will you truly see how life used to look, and to be honest i wasn’t so bad at all!

no it was not, my grand grand mother was from bratislava, most people in our town spoke three languages slovakian, german and hungarian as my grand grand parents did.. as the history of bratislava(the original name of the city before monarchy was uratislava derived from king vratislaus then changed germanized to uratislausburg and then to pressburg) goes it was first a slavic town and then after the magyars came in 10th century and then austrian pacted with them to create austro-hungaria lot of germanic speaking and hungarian speaking people settled there so it became a city with three languages.
