Born in 1993 from the dismemberment of the ex Czechoslovakia, from which it has inherited the two areas of the Bohemia to north-west and of the Moravia with part of the Silesia to south-east.
It constitutes a part of the historical territory of the Austro Hungarian Empire; then it has suffered the long dictatorship of the communist regime and today it is one of the more advanced easthern European nations, also thanks to a generally well qualified labour.
Prague is a very beautiful city, with the old city centre more charming of the eastern Europe, with big attractions on the hill of the castle (cathedral of S.Vito,) along Vltava with its monumental bridges and in the low town of Staré Mesto.
The rest of the nation owns big attractions, almost always neglected by the visitors and obscured by the overwhelming beauty in Prague, that would also need of a right revaluation and often suitable restorations and careful maintenance, as Brno, Karlovy Vary, Kutna Hora and Olomouc.
