Summary/Abstract: The first traces of the capuchin friars in the area of today’s Slovakia can be registered continuously since the 15-year war (1593 – 1606). Despite repeated attempts, the friars settled in Hungary only after the division of the Czech-Austrian province (founded in 1618) in 1673 to the Czech province and the Austro-Hungarian Province. The first place in Hungary, where they finally settled in 1674, was Pezinok. Two years later in 1676, followed by Bratislava. The founding of the third friary on the Slovak territory took place only in 1756 in Holíč. The Slovak friaries were sequentially part of the Austro-Hungarian Province, the Vienna Province, the Czech-Moravian Province and the Czechoslovak Province. They were also administered as the General Commissariat and the General Vice-province. This study deals with the exciting story of the capuchin friars in Slovakia, which is part of the European Franciscan story and which led to the establishment of an independent Slovak Province in 1987.
