Welcome to the Czech Republic! The country lies in the very centre of Europe, bordering with Germany in the West, Poland in the North, Slovakia in the East, and Austria in the South. The area of the Czech Republic comprises three historical parts: Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. Each of them has retained its specific character. At present the Czech Republic is divided into 14 regions. The capital of the Czech Republic is Prague. Other large cities are Brno, Ostrava, Plzeň, Olomouc and Liberec.

The economy of the country is doing very well at the moment, the standard of living has been growing steadily over the past 15 or so years. The Czech Republic has been a member of NATO since 1999 and the EU since 2004. Every year the country is visited by more than a million tourists who come here, attracted by the Czech history, culture and landscape.

The Czech Republic was formally established in 1993 when Czechoslovakia was peacefully divided into two states – The Czech Republic and Slovakia. The fact that he country is so young certainly does not mean that its history is not interesting. On the contrary. The area was already settled in the primeval times and, thanks to its location, it later became a strategic crossroad for the whole of Europe for more than a thousand years.

The Czech Republic is a country of castles and chateaus, beautiful historical towns, cathedrals, temples, monastries and churches. Altogether 12 places have so far been enlisted in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The capital Prague belongs among the most beautiful and most visited cities in the whole world.   

However, the Czech Republic's claim to fame is not only its monuments. Many tourists come here to admire the beauty of its countryside. Even though the Czech Republic is a landlocked country there are many places where tourists can enjoy an active holiday, such as mountains, South Bohemian lakes, forests, spectacular rocks, caves or catacombs. The country is a paradise for skiers, climbers, hikers as well as water or bike lovers.

Regardless of whether you come to admire the country's architecture, culture or countryside you will certainly enjoy discovering the original Czech cuisine, delicious beer or the renowned Moravian wine. The Czech Republic is also very famous for its spa resorts.

With 78 000 km2, the country belongs among the smaller European states, however, for tourists it is certainly a Great Power. Don't take our word for it - come see it for yourself! Czech Atlas will provide you with everything you could possibly want to know!

We wish you a pleasant stay!
