    Slovakia in the 19th and 20th century



    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!

    When?

    ps. The geographical and political concept of Slovakia did not exist before the 20th century. The Horné Uhorsko (Upper Hungary) or the Horná zem (Highland) was the Slovakian name of this land.

    This is the fact you idiot teenager boy! The Slovensko name was one of the version of Slavonia's name (as the tót name was the Slavonians name). The first usage of the name onto the Slovak populated land derives from 1809 (Dobrovský), but this was a rare exception and this was the situation at Bernolák too. Stúr used the name onto the area firstly exclusively in the fourties of the 19th century. But the average Slovak not used this name until the 20th century, when the first Slovakian state formed in Czechoslovakia. Since the original Slovak name of this region was the Horná zem and this was the common name before 1920.

    We talk about the name of this land and this name was not Slovakia in the 19th century. This is an anachronism. As the "Slovakia[n?] land" too.

    Do you suggest the author of the topic should have written a side note explaining that territories of modern Slovakia was known under a different name back then? It does not matter how it was called in the context, since the topic is about people of the land, who can trace their culture and language to the 19th century and beyond.
