The major force behind the idea is to breathe new life into the Gambrinus and Corgoň Ligas by reigniting some of the famous rivalries of the Czechoslovak First League’s golden years, with fixtures such as Slovan Bratislava vs Sparta Prague and Spartak Trnava vs Slavia Prague returning to the fixture lists.
This victory led to the club qualifying for the UEFA Cup where they were drawn against Maltese outfit Sliema Wanderers. They drew 1-1 in Malta and then won the return leg 2-1, a game played at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground. This then set up a tie against Slovan Bratislava which Borough lost 4-0 on aggregate. The average attendance throughout the competition Slovan is currently in third place. Before the club in Bratislava are only Dinamo Minsk (14,375 spectators per game) and SKA St. Petersburg (11456), but both teams have a much bigger hall.

Slovakia can be easily traveled criss-cross by car in one day. The largest span from east to west is 428.8 km and the shortest 77.6 km. Total area of Slovakia is 49 036 km2.
In this relatively small area there are many cultural and historical sites referring to the events that took place in Slovakia during several millennia.
Slovak territory was inhabited in prehistoric times. From this period several archaeological artifacts are preserved and placed in the national history museums in many cities of Slovakia.
To the most valuable preserved artifacts belongs a prehistoric neanderthalskull cast from the prehistoric site of Gánovce. Prehistoric settlements were excavated in Smolenice, Čaka, Očkov, Nitriansky Hrádok; one of Celtic settlements Havránok was discovered near Liptovská Mara and many others…
The territory of Slovakia was the border area of the Roman Empire, limes Romanus of the Roman Empire. Romans led several wars of conquest on the territory of today’s Slovakia. In the year 179, commander of the Roman legions Maximilianus Valerius, after winning the battle with Marcomanns, had carved an inscription dedicated to the goddess of victory on a rock
reef, on which Trencin Castle was built in later centuries.
As a result of the geographical location of Slovakia in Central Europe, raids and military incursions became frequent. The territory of Slovakia was during the centuries threatened by military incursions of Rome, Frankish Empire, the Tatars, the Turks. Despite these threats Slovaks managed to preserve their historical and national identity.
A vibrant Middle Ages in Slovakia (especially from the 14th century) saw the construction and ongoing refurbishment of many outstanding castles and several notable cathedrals. Throughout this period, the Slovak lands were under the Kingdom of Hungary, eventually included in the Habsburg Empire of Austria-Hungary.
The 20th century saw several changes in how Slovakia was ruled, for both better and for worse, with a communist regime taking control of Czechoslovakia in 1948. Although the visitor still finds influences of this totalitarian period (which ended in a nonviolent Velvet revolution in 1989), Slovakia’s identity today is above all that of a thriving new market economy.

Census refers to population enumeration. For statistical purposes the government of Hungary periodically took a census of the population. The results were used to follow and regulate various aspects of society particularly taxation and con¬scription. The first census of the inhabitants of the Kingdom of Hungary took place in 1784-1785 conducted under the Emperor Josef. Some censuses were general. Others, such as the 1848 Hungarian census of the Jews, were taken of specific areas or for specific purposes.
The first official census was in 1784-1785. Other Hungarian censuses were conducted in 1808, 1828, 1848 (Jews only), 1850, 1857, 1869, 1880, 1890, 1900, and 1910. Under the Czechoslovak government Slovakia had censuses in 1921, 1930, 1940, 1950, 1961, 1970, 1980, and 1991. Future censuses will be conducted by the new Slovak government.
Contents: The contents vary according to census. Some censuses list only head of household, conscription number of house, and taxable property. Many census returns of the 1800s give house number, head of household, names of members of the household (including servants), ages, occupations, religions, and relationships to head of household; some also give date and place of birth.
Location: State regional archives and district archives.
Research use: These records link families together into family groups and greatly supplement the research process. They are extremely valuable in locating birthplaces, and determining ages, and relationships and lead to primary vital records sources, making them very valuable for pedigree links. Each census is important by itself but each should also be used with church records and other censuses.
Accessibility: Census materials, if they can be found, may be accessible for research in person. Nevertheless, permission may be denied in many cases. Aside from the materials in the collection of the Family History Library, few, if any, census materials are accessible for research.
For more information and images of censuses see Hungary Census page.
