    We have already topic “Latin and Slavic similar words“.
    Besides Latin and Romance languages Germanic languages make another big Indo-European language family in Europe which have many common words with Slavic languages.

    Note however that Slavic languages have many Germanic loanwords so it’s sometimes difficult to distinguish Slavic and Germanic words derived from the same Indo-European roots and Germanic words just borrowed by Slavs.
