About the Czech Republic
History and the present, yesterday’s events and tomorrow’s hopes stand shoulder to shoulder in this country in the center of Europe. Nature herself has endowed the Czech Lands with strong contours, their outlines molded into natural borders. The natural borders of the Czech Lands were described as early as in 1125 by the chronicler Kosmas in his „Chronicle of the Czech Lands”. The mountains around the country were aided in their protective role by the deep forests, through which led little known tracks to the mountain passes. The Czech Lands spread out these mountain ranges a land that the National Anthem lauds as a paradise on Earth.
