Welcome to the second round of our competition series called "My Slovakia". In this series we're focusing on everything representing Slovakia. This second episode focuses on the large numbers of Croatian settlers who came to Slovakia in the 16th century, bringing their language and culture with them. In time, their language morphed with aspects of the Slovak language to create a dialect unique to Slovakia. As always, at the end of each competition round comes a question for you to answer. Get it correct and you'll be in the draw to win cool Slovak prizes. So, grab a pen and paper then press the play button below.
And now for the competition question: Why were the new arrivals from Croatia welcomed to Slovakia with open arms?
