Summary/Abstract: In the period between the two world wars, the Bulgarian community in Brno was the largest Bulgarian minority in the Czech lands. Today, according to specialized investigations, living in the second largest city in the Czech Republic are about 500 Bulgarians, who, however, do not state their belonging to the Bulgarian na¬tion, according to the latest 2001 population census. The ethnological information reveals the complexity and ambiguity of the present-day ethnic situation among the Bulgarian community and the attitude of the majority to it. On the one hand, this community continues to engage in vigorous activities to this day and to keep up both its internal contacts and its relations with relatives in Bulgaria; on the other hand, it has fitted in so well in the Czech society that the overwhelming part of the citizens of Brno do not even suspect its existence.
