Slovakia is populated by more than 5.3 million inhabitants. The strongest nationally are the Slovaks (it is 85.7 % of all inhabitants).

Then the gypsies (1% of all inhabitants), Czechs (1% of all inhabitants), the Ukrainians, the Germans and the Poles live together with the Slovaks in this country.
The most of Slovaks live in cities. Bratislava is the biggest town and is situated in the west part of the Slovak Republic. The town Kosice is the second biggest slovak town. It is situated in the east part of Slovakia. Other important cities are: Banska Bystrica (in central part of Slovakia), Nitra, Žilina, Poprad and Prešov. Every city has a new historical Centrum.
Year 2002 was for Slovakia very successful. Slovakia is World Champion in ice-hockey and Slovak tennis team won gold medal in Fed cup. Our swimmer Martina Moravcova is very successful too. There are a lot of the ski-centres in our mountains so the ski-sports including snowbording are very popular in Slovakia.
Slovakia is an industrial and agricultural country. The most of Slovaks work in the industry (36% of all economically active inhabitants). The engineering (centre is in Bratislava and in central part of Slovakia), chemical industry (centre is in Bratislava and in west part of Slovakia – Slovakofarma Hlohovec produces drugs) and the Slovak food industry (all over the country – for example RAJO is a producer of the milk products, Figaro produces chocolates ) are very important for the Slovak economy.
