Czechoslavak Independence


Sunday marked the 89th anniversary of Czech independence after the break up the Austro-Hungarian empire. Tomáš Masaryk was elected in 1920 and held the office for 15 years until poor health forced his resignation.

WWII ended what we call here "the First Republic" barely 20 years after it began.

  • And I'm glad that Czech republic is developing and improving very fast after it became independent. For example, i remember Prague in 80-s, it was good, but now Prague is much and much better. When I see Prague, I understand how strong is Czech economy. Nowadays Prague is becoming one the most visited cities in central Europe . Due to the increased incoming tourism activity the number of Prague accommodation providers is increasing as well.
