The Czech Republic, General Information

The Czech Republic became an independent state in January 1993 after Czechoslovakia split into its two constituent parts and entered the EU in 2004. Its total area is 78 866 km² and its total population is 10.5 million people. Its capital is Prague and its currency, the Czech Koruna.

Before World War II, Czechoslovakia was one of the 10 most industrialised states in the world, and the only central European country to remain a democracy until 1938.

Prague is more than 1,000 years old and has a wealth of historic architecture of different styles. Because of this, the city has become a favoured location for many international film makers.

Hills and mountains cover about 95% of the country – ideal for skiing, mountain biking and hill walking.
