IN THE HEART OF
There are three main language
Slavic languages are spoken in thirteen European countries: Belarus, (White Russia), Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
Two unique Slavic languages are
still spoken by the SORBS of LUSATIA in
These communities, whose languages are spoken nowhere else, represent very special minority cultures, and have preserved their Slavic culture and indentity in their host countries.
Aside from the official languages,
there are many regional dialects spoken throughout
Slavic languages extend over an area totalling 18 694 500 km², and are spoken by some 287 052 000 people, not including Slavonic people living outside of Slavonic countries, for example Slavic people in the states of the former Soviet Union, Baltic states, Kazakhstan, etc. (Statistic for 2005)
The SLAVIC CULTURAL INITIATIVE has been created as a cultural bridge, to promote awareness of Slavic languages, culture, history and traditions. It is a way for Slavic people of all origins to come to know ourselves and each other better.
Those who speak one Slavic language as a mother tongue should understand and speak all the Slavic languages. These languages are our wealth.
Anyone can play a part in the Slavic Cultural Initiative, whether you live in a Slavic country or abroad. We welcome your ideas, texts, initiatives, suggestions, critiques.
Write us in any Slavic language, or any other major language, especially English, which as today 's world language will be the most important means for communicating in our Slavic Union.
This call we extend especially to descendants of the Slavic people living around the world, almost as numerous today as those still living in the original Slavic countries.
We hope to organize cultural activities of all kinds, including sporting events featuring Slavic national teams.
No one can deny that we play great football, hockey, basketball, handball, and other sports. Ultimately, this could lead to organizing our own SLAVIC OLYMPICS, a SLAVENIADA.
We propose a world-wide MISS SLAVIA competition. No one can deny Slavic women are among the most beautiful. We will organize a SONG OF SLAVIA song competition, like we have today with the Eurovision song contest, and many other interesting events are possible.
We will also propose educational programs and in primary schools for teaching Slavic languages and culture.
We will provide teaching materials and organize fun learning activities such as games and quizzes about Slavic literature, geography, history and society. No one can deny that our literature is great.
Slavia - this beautiful old slavic word will become our common name and bring us together. ..................There are great possibilities. Let' s make them happen!
Slavia - the Land of Love, Peace and Freedom!
IS SUCH A LAND IN THE HEART OF
