Paška: Slovaks in Hungary are preserving their culture and language

Ethnic Slovaks living in Hungary are preserving their culture and language, and are running their own institutions and schools, Slovak Parliamentary Chairman Pavol Paška, the TASR newswire reported on July 7.

He was speaking at celebrations to mark the Day of Slovaks in Hungary, which took place in Rudabanyacska - a village in northeast Hungary.

During an ecumenical service at the local Greek-Catholic church, Paška praised the event, which has been organised by ethnic Slovaks for the eleventh time.
