To read more about the Czech Republic see <a href="https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/ez.html">The World Factbook</a> and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Republic">Wikipedia</a>.
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.

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.
