The arrival of Slovaks into Slavonia, where the largest Slovak settlement in the territory of Croatia is nowadays, began in the time when Slovaks started moving to the Lower Land. Slovak settlement is concentrated in the towns of Našice, Markovec, Požega, Ledenik, Jakov, Pakrac, Ilok, Osijek, Josipovac, Soljani and others. Their cultural activity was mostly reflected in amateur theatricals. Various cultural clubs were founded after the First World War and Czechoslovak educational organizations in some towns. Culture was pursued there particularly through folklore and they have kept this tradition until today. Recently there is the Association of Slovaks in Našice (originally from 1991 the Slovak Foundation Matica Slovenská in the Republic of Croatia). A press organ of the Association is the magazine Prameň (The Spring). There have been no major literary expressions of local Slovaks so far even though the interest in Slovak literature in schools and among readers is remarkable.
