- The support of the development of minority cultures for us is an issue of primary importance. Because Transcarpathia is a multicultural region, which is inhabited by more than 130 minorities. Today, we actively cooperate with all national minorities in the region, but especially - with Hungarian, Czech, Romanian and Slovak national societies. We encourage children so that they become involved in a variety of clubs, national folklore and ethnographic groups established in educational and cultural institutions of the the region, - the head of the department said.
