Czech Republic

Prague

The Czech Republic is in Central Europe, bordered by Poland to the northeast, Germany to the west, Austria to the south, and Slovakia to the east. The Czech lands fell under the Habsburg rule from 1526, later becoming part of the Austrian Empire. The independent Republic of Czechoslovakia was formed in 1918, following the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian empire after World War I. In an 1948 coup d'état, Czechoslovakia became a communist-ruled state, until the Velvet Revolution in 1989 returned to democracy. On January 1, 1993 Czechoslovakia peacefully dissolved into its constituent states, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Prague is the capitol and largest city. Prague is widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe with preserved examples from all periods of its history and is among the most visited cities on the continent. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world.
