The Czech lands have been the crossroads of European cultures for many centuries. The cultural character of Czech cities, villages and spa towns have always been a source of inspiration to visitors and guests, who come from all corners of the world. The Czech Republic, one of the youngest in the family of European countries, was born in 1993 when the Czechoslovak Federal Republic split into two independent states.
