      They meant that once the ideas from France, etc., reached the main cities/towns of the Habsburg monarchy, the journeymen picked them up there and passed them on to the rest of the country.

      It may begin to make sense if it's phrased along the lines of "journeymen from W-SK mostly visited their nearby Slavic areas in Moravia..." They probably used "Slavic" there to differentiate those areas from the W-SK journeymen's nearby German area of Austria, as well as the vast German areas in Moravia, Bohemia, Carinthia. By contrast, Galicia and Russia's Poland were practically all Slavic, so the E-SK journeymen had no reason to choose by language and wandered all over there.
