From wikipedia:

Carinthia (German: Kärnten, German pronunciation: [ˈkɛɐ̯ntn̩] (listen); Slovene: Koroška, pronunciation ; Italian: Carinzia) is the southernmost Austrian state or Land. Situated within the Eastern Alps, it is noted for its mountains and lakes. The main language is German. Its regional dialects belong to the Southern Bavarian group. Carinthian Slovene dialects, which predominated in the southeastern part of the region up to the first half of the 20th century, are now spoken by a small minority.

Carinthia's main industries are tourism, electronics, engineering, forestry, and agriculture. The multinational corporations Philips, Infineon and Siemens have large operations there.


The etymology of the name „Carinthia“, similar to Carnia or Carniola, has not been conclusively established. The Ravenna Cosmography (about AD 700) referred to a Slavic „Carantani“ tribe as the eastern neighbours of the Bavarians. In his History of the Lombards, the 8th century chronicler Paul the Deacon mentions „Slavs in Carnuntum, which is erroneously called Carantanum“ (Carnuntum, quod corrupte vocitant Carantanum) for the year 663.

A possible etymology of the name „Carantani“ is that it may have been formed from a toponymic base carant- which ultimately derives from pre-Indo-European root *karra meaning „rock“ (cf.
