      Haidee,

      Yes, today Moravia is in the Eastern region of the Czech Republic. I was
      merely saying that in the past Czechs & Slovaks were part of the same
      country (Czechoslovakia). As a result, today Western Slovaks & Eastern
      Czechs have many similar dialects, customs, etc.

      Ok, now I'm even more confused. Is not the Czech Republic made up of
      Bohemia and Moravia, or not?

      See you later,

      Austria is full of Czechs who speak German. Czechia is full of Slovaks
      (Moravians) who speak Czech. It's very simple, like Ireland being full of
      Celts who speak a Germanic language (English).

      Or, to put it another way, a sprig off the branch of Western Slavs who speak
      some variant of Slovak, ended up in territory which was held by Austria. So
      Moravian dialects are often very close to western Slovak. In my mind it is
      one musical tradition, but their music is less influenced by Magyar elements
      and more by western European elements.

      I thought Moravia was one of the Czech republics, along with Bohemia!
      I'm confused now.

      Yep, and an odd piece or two of other real estate. What we are saying is that Moravians are/were the same ethnicity and language group as Slovaks.

        Yep, and an odd piece or two of other real estate. What we are saying is that Moravians are/were the same ethnicity and language group as Slovaks. Politically they fell under the rule of Austria and ended up as part of the Czech Republic. Culturally they are/were more Slovak than Czech.
