Slovakia in 70 years

SLOVAKIA, by the year 2070, may have 4.5 million to 4.8 million inhabitants, down from the current 5.38 million, the country's Statistics Office predicted.

Over the last years, fewer children have been born and the situation is not expected to improve in the coming decades.

The Slovak daily Pravda wrote on December 4 that, according to experts, immigrants could not improve the population drop considerably because they usually did not consider Slovakia to be their final destination.
