    Perun. Because he is similar to Thor. In my opinion is the representation of Slavic pride and honor. I also believe that the temperament of us males is the nearest one to this divinity.

    For me it is Perun, because he created Slavs and other white people in general. Therefore the thunder god was in all aryan civilisations the chief god or at least among the mayor deities – Perún, Perkunas, Taranius, Thor, Zeus, Jupiter, Indra etc. Do you remember that old Greek myth how Zeus fellin love with Europa and kidnapped her? It is just imagination of how Perún chosen people in asia and introduced them into europe.

    Parom or Perún, because people have kept him in mind at longest. He is present at Slovak folk culture, traditions, history and language in various forms (as well as at another Slavic folks).

    Well actually different tribes used to worship different Gods or better to say different Gods had different values for them. Among East Slavs Svarog was very often seen as major god, while among west-Slavs and south-Slavs (especially Poles, Croats and Slovenes as i noticed) Svetovid/Svantevid was most commonly worshiped and was usually seen as an most important god, and Triglav after him. Perun on other hand was worshiped by all of them but i think he didn't have the "chief God" title, that's the thing with the God Pantheon, none really was the chief god i guess.

    I'd voted, Stribog!

    I'm into nature, hiking, and such adventures in the wilds are a big thing for me. He's the best God companion for that i believe.

    Veles, primarly because my birth-town probably bear it's name cause of him. Also "Veles book", extraordinary text, regardless of what some people declare it as forgery :P

    Veles – Great Father of the people who gave valuable knowledge to Slavs: gardening, beekeeping and pottery. It protects the forests, birds and beasts. To him is dedicated Book of Veles.

    I voted, Svarog

    he is the cheif god of Slavs i think, similar to Germanic Odin.

    By the way Dervan, Book of Veles is an forgery as i have heard. I didn't have the chance to take a look at it.

    Many equate Odin with Voden, mainly because of similar name Voden-Woden (High German variant of Wotan, Odin)

    I think it isn't forgery, but even best scholars don't agree about it.

    Well it's only a coincidence, Voden has no such role in Slavic panthen as Oden has in Germanic one.

    Besides, name Voden derived from Slavic words for water "Voda/wody/воды" and so he is the god of water among other things, while Odin/Wotan/Wōdanaz is derived from proto-Germanic words made of merging old Norse words for "fury, poetry, rage" and few others.
    So it's just a coincidence, same as for example root Slav in Slavic is connected to the term Glory (slava, slawa) while in Germanic it's the root for Germanic language family word "Slave"…

    Yeah, and Voden isn't even close of being any really so important God in Slavic pantheon as Odin in Germanic so there is no way they could be connected on any level. It's just coincidence about the name similarity.

    Perun is overrated :D j/k… i'd wonder if any Black-metal Slavs would chose Crnobog :D what do you think?

    Ah, good you mention him! Also one of favourites because he is so mysterious and much less is known about him.
    About black metallers, I know Russian BM band called Chernobog. On Metal Archives I see there is two even.

    What is ironic is that even though he is one of most obscure of all Slavic gods, he has had most exposure in popular culture:

    Chernabog in Disney's Fantasia movie (1940):

    Tchernobog in Monolith's Blood 3D game (1997):

    http://blood.wiki-site.com/index.php/Tchernobog

    Do you remember this game? I think I still have it somewhere.

    My favourite god would be Svetovid but I voted Veles by accident  :(
    Chernoboh is in my opinion not an "evil" god. He is simply the counterpart of Beloboh. In my opinion, the concept of "evil" is just an invention of the abrahamitic religions.

    Probably true, it is said that both Belobog and Chernobog are ruled by Svarog.
