Who is the "Carpathian Germans?"

Since the Middle Ages, our Hungarian territory has been inhabited by the German population , in particular by craftsmen, tradesmen and spirits . The Germans in Slovakia, as one part of the Hungarians in the Germans, have settled and often settled in the 12th-14th. Three centuries of Slovakia: Bratislava and the surrounding area, Hauerland (Spišská Streda) and Spiš.

The naming of the "Carpathian Germans" for the Germans in Slovakia and in Transcarpathian Ukraine was used as it very clearly expressed geographic diversity from the Sudeten Germans.

Through the German population , the Gothic architecture , art, craft crafts, and the way of office in the cities were developed in Slovakia .
