Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Slovakia. Slovakia has no state religion and the Constitution provides for religious freedom. The prevalent faith is Roman Catholicism, professed by an estimated 70% of the Slovak population. The Islamic Foundation in Slovakia (Islamská nadácia na Slovensku) is generally regarded as an official institution of the Muslim community. All efforts to establish an Islamic centre in Slovakia, including a mosque, have so far been unsuccessful. However, in 2009 the Islamic Foundation in Slovakia represented by Mr Hasna succeeded in opening an Islamic cultural centre, called the Cordoba Centre for the Intercultural Dialogue in central Bratislava. The only printed Islamic periodical publication is Al-Islam magazine, published irregularly, by the Islamic Foundation. The Islamic Foundation has its own website (, which is regarded as an official medium of the Slovak Muslim community.
