Prague, Český Krumlov, Brno, Telč, Karlovy Vary and many more – the Czech Republic is the treasury of beautiful historical and dynamical contemporary European art. It lives from its distinguished culture commemorated with many traditions and red-letter days.
The Czech Republic is not only a modern country with good infrastructure and an advanced economy, but it is also a country with a rich history, which can offer a really wide choice of cultural opportunities.
The most visible proof of Czech cultural maturity are the works of art that can be seen in theaters, cinemas, libraries, globally recognized galleries and concert halls. The composer Antonín Dvořák, writer Franz Kafka, painter Toyen, Oscar-winning director Miloš Forman, writer Milan Kundera and singer Magdalena Kožená were all born in the Czech Republic, and their work is known around the world. The Czech writer Karel Čapek invented the word robot, in his play RUR.
Undoubtedly, the integral part of the history of Czech culture is Czech traditions. The traditions are mostly maintained in villages, especially in the Moravian-Silesian region, where they remain as a sign of the cultural taste of the specific areas. Traditional costumes are increasingly popular among Czech people and are also appreciated by foreign visitors.
