A brief insight into deities of the old Slavic mythology. Slavic mythology is the mythological aspect of the polytheistic religion that was practised by the Slavs before Christianisation. The religion possesses many common traits with other religions descended from the Proto-Indo-European religion. Old Slavic religion evolved over more than a thousand years and some parts of it were from neolithic or possibly even mesolithic times. The Earth was worshipped as Mat Zemlya and there were no temples. Rituals were performed in nature.

Svarog is the god of the blacksmith and the father of Dažbog, a Slavic solar deity, so some think that Svarog is the Slavic god of celestial fire and of blacksmithing. Folklore portrays him as a fire serpent, a winged dragon that breathes fire. His animals are a golden horned ox, a boar, a horse, and a falcon named Varagna. Other consider him the Slavic sun god and spirit of fire; his name means bright and clear. The name may be related to Sanskrit Svarga and Persian xwar (pron. Chvar) both meaning the same thing, indicating Indo-European etymological relation. So sacred was the fire that it was forbidden to shout or swear at it while it was being lit. According to some interpretations the fire-god Svarožič was the son of Svarog. In neo-paganist religions, Svarog is often the supreme god-creator and the central part of the (holy) trinity Triglav. He completed the creation of the world by giving it Prav.
