Slavic Culture

Origin of Slavic Culture

(Sept 7, 2023) Slavic culture originated around the Dnieper. As Greek/ Byzantine power waned they migrated south into the Balkans and north into Russia. By 600 CE this split in culture was becoming linguistically obvious.

Today the south Slavs include the Bosniaks, Bulgarians, Croats, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs and Slovenes. They are different from the North (West and East) Slavs. Today, groups which speak West Slavonic languages include the Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, and Sorbs. The groups which speak the East Slavonic languages are the Belarusians, Russians, Rusyns, and Ukrainians.
