Did you know?

Arms-CzechRepublic.png
The Czech Republic is a country in Central Europe bordering Poland to the northeast, Germany to the west, Austria to the south, and Slovakia to the east. To read more about the Czech Republic see The World Factbook and Wikipedia.
The country was for centuries known as Bohemia in English. When the nation regained its independence in 1918, the new name of Czechoslovakia was adopted to reflect the union of the Czech (Bohemian) and Slovak territories. Following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czech half of the former nation found itself without a common single-word name in English. In 1993, the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs suggested the name Czechia as an official alternative; however, this has not become widespread in English.

Jurisdictions

Austrian Provinces.jpg
The Czech Republic became an independent state on January 1, 1993 when Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The area had been part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of the first world war when, in October 1918, the Czech provinces of Austria (Bohemia, Moravia, and Austrian Silesia) joined with the Slovak and Ruthenian (Ukrainian) counties of Hungary to create the Republic of Czechoslovakia. The Ruthenian region had been taken into Ukraine in 1945.
