Article 57 of the Tŭrnovo Constitution promised all Bulgarian citizens equality before the law, while Article 61 gave freedom to any slave the moment he or she set foot on Bulgarian territory. Ever since the Ottoman conquest of the 14th century, the largest minority group in Bulgaria has been that of the Turks. This element has declined since 1878, and the Greek minority has all but disappeared. The Jews too have largely left the country, the Roma have long been present but until the period after the fall of communism had been largely ignored, while the Bulgarian attitude to the Pomaks has generally been one of suppressed hostility. Since 1989 the population of Bulgaria has declined.
