THERE IS A LAND IN THE HEART OF EUROPE
There are three main language groups in
Romano-Germanic and Slavic.
Slavic languages are spoken in twelve
European countries: Belarus, (White Russia), Bosnia
and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic,
Two unique Slavic languages are still
spoken by the SORBS of LUSATIA in Germany, and by the CROATS
of GRADI?TE (BURGENLAND CROATS) in Austria.
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 Europe which are less
well-known and less studied.
Slavic languages extend over an area
totalling 18 694 600 km?, and are spoken by
some 294 216 600 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.
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

Anyone can play a part in the Slavic 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
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 EUROPE
