There is a small number of Serbs in Slovakia, mostly located in the southern town of Komárno, where they have been living since the 17th century. There has also been a historic minority in Bratislava (Požun), where many Habsburg Serbs studied. The number of Slovaks of Serb descent is hard to determine but nevertheless they are recognized as an official minority.
The Association of Serbs in Slovakia claim that 2,784 Serbs, born outside Slovakia, currently live in Slovakia, while another 800 Slovaks are of Serb descent. According to the 2011 census, there were 698 Serbian nationals in Slovakia.
