Czech Republic Culture, Geography and History
Geography and Environment of Czech Republic
Geographically, the Czech Republic is nestled at the core of the central European scrum, landlocked between Poland, Slovakia, Austria and Germany. Often referred to as an eastern European country due to its historical communist and Eastern Bloc influences, the Czech people however, are prompt to remind us that this is very much central Europe - and that Prague is in fact further west than Vienna!
The west of the Czech Republic is known as Bohemia, and is surrounded by low European mountains that stem from the Alps. The foothills lead into lush rolling plains and beautiful green countryside. In the east, Moravia is blessed with a variety of dramatic landscapes, with hilly countryside punctuated by the famous limestone cave system - the Moravský Kras.
