Czech Republic Visit: 2007-5
2008-11-07 - I am a resident of Czech republic. Let me give you some information about the Czech republic. The capital is Praque (Praha). It is the seat of the President, government and parliament and political, cultural and economic centre of the country. It spreads out on both banks of the river Vltava in the centre of Bohemia. It covers an area of almost 500 sq.km and it has 1,2 million inhabitants. The whole city consist of 10 administrative districts. The oldest parts are the Old Town(Staré Mesto), the Lesser Town(Malá Strana), the New Town (Nové Mesto), Josefov, Hradcany and Vyšehrad.

Prague became the imperial residence of Charles IV. and during his reign it flourished and grew. In 1918 Praque was capital of the independen Czechoslovak Republic. In 1939 it was occupied by german troops. After the Praque Uprising agains the fascist the town was liberated by Russians on 9th May,1945. The August occupation of Praque in 1968 stopped the democratic reforms in the country and began a process of normalization. On 17th November, 1989, the Velvet Revolution began democratic changes in our society. The whole process continued with the splitting of former federal Czechoslovakia into independent states and thus, on 1st Janauary,1993, Praque become the capital of the Czech Republic. On 1st May, 2004, the Czech Republic became the member of EU.
