The Czech Republic and Prague

ICM2014-czech-republic(1)After World War I, the Czechs and Slovaks of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire merged to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar years, having rejected a federal system, the new country’s predominantly Czech leaders were frequently preoccupied with meeting the increasingly strident demands of other ethnic minorities within the republic, most notably the Slovaks, the Sudeten Germans, and the Ruthenians (Ukrainians). On the eve of World War II, Nazi Germany occupied the Czech part of the country and Slovakia became an independent state allied with Germany. After the war, a reunited but truncated Czechoslovakia (less Ruthenia) fell within the Soviet sphere of influence. In 1968, an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended the efforts of the country’s leaders to liberalize communist rule and create “socialism with a human face,” ushering in a period of repression known as “normalization.” The peaceful “Velvet Revolution” swept the Communist Party from power at the end of 1989 and inaugurated a return to democratic rule and a market economy. On 1 January 1993, the country underwent a nonviolent “velvet divorce” into its two national components, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.

Briefly on Prague

praguePrague is a major transport hub in Central Europe. Accessibility, whether by air, road or rail is very good. Due to its location in the middle of Europe, Prague is the best start point for trips to other Central and Eastern European countries and beyond. International airport and railway stations are connected to the city centre by effective system of public transport.

The official language is Czech. The majority of inhabitants have a basic, or possibly even higher level of fluency in English and German. In hotels, restaurants, travel agencies, places of historical interest and many shops and services it is possible to make oneself understood in English or German and exceptionally also in French.
