Religion

The Slovak constitution guarantees religious freedom, but most of the people in Slovakia were baptised as children, as a result of family tradition. The largest religion in Slovakia are the Roman Catholics (68.9%), the second largest group are non-religious (13%), then Lutherans (6.9%), Greek Catholics (4.1%), Protestant Reformers (2.0%) and Orthodox Church (0.9%).

In general, it can be said that people in Slovakia are religious (at least, more religious than most of the European countries). Although, many Slovaks claim being part of a religion, but actually, except of days like Christmas or Easter they do not visit the church a lot (or never).

    Yes, Essar, according to some estimations, there are like 5000 muslims living in Slovakia. But I guess unofficially it could be more. Unfortunately, nowadays there is no Mosque in Slovakia.

    Kian, thank you for the information, we added it in the article. We are very sorry for the false information in the previous comment. Is it a new mosque? If I remember correctly, I’ve read an article few years ago that Slovakia is the only country in EU without mosque.
