Bulgarians-Palcens or Pavlikens, who live in Vojvodina, are Catholics. They left their homeland after unsuccessful uprising against the Turks in 1688 in the town of Ciprovci, in the north-west of Bulgaria, which was an unofficial capital of culture, economy and politics in Bulgaria. More than 300 years after that, they succeeded in keeping their identity, with the support of Serbia and Bulgaria. In spite of their efforts, their language is threatened by dying out. Today, most of Bulgarian Pavlikens live in Banat villages of Belo Blato, Ivanovo and Skorenovac.
