Mateja recalled several times the slavic culture with me, a bit sad that this culture is not more known and shared. Then I wanted to know more about it. I began researches on internet, and it's not easy. Because I don't speak slavic language, I have to find informations in english or in french. I find some but not a lot. And of course it's a huge subject, because the slavic culture is of course settled in a long time and a large space. So I would need more time to get some real knowledge about it. I would say that is a first step.
I realized how much I don't know almost nothing about slavic culture – in a whole historic and geographic way. For me it's really sad, cause it's a big culture in Europe, and so we should learn more about it in France (and all Europe countries, but I don't know if they learn more about it or not in others countries). I'll try to find a book about history of Europe, which explains really the whole european picture, from East to West and South to North ! :)
As the slavic culture is a really diverse culture, it's not easy to get a full picture of it - different regions involved, and the cultures evolving differently. Like the latin culture I would say, common things coming from old times in really different regions. Common points and different evolutions. Then, as I tried to get the « beginning » of the slavic culture, from the « protoslavic», it seems as often for this old times, that there is not a lot of historical proofs, so it's not easy to know what happened and how, but it looks really interesting. Also with a strong mythology. Nowadays, the slavic culture is still huge and diverse, and I'm happy that I began to know about it leaving nine months in Slovenia. I will continue my slavic learning process :)
