Czech Culture

The Czech Republic has a population of just over 10 million people. 94% of these identify themselves as Czechs, with Slovaks, Roma, Poles, Germans, Ukrainian and Vietnamese making up the rest. Czech is a West-Slavic language from the Slavic branch of the Indo-European languages.

The Arts

All across the Czech Republic, but especially in the larger towns such as Prague and Brno, you will find plenty to whet your artistic appetite, theaters, cinemas, museums, galleries and concerts. There is a huge range of cultural festivals, parties and parades held all through the year. You can also marvel at the architecture; from the gothic spires of Prague to the Renaissance facades in the Unesco-listed town of Telč, or the baroque buildings and Renaissance fortress in the old town of Český Krumlov.

Food and Drink

A typical Czech diet consists of a lot of meat such as pork, beef and poultry, as well as organ meats such as liver, kidneys and tongue. Meat is usually prepared with gravy and served with dumplings, potatoes or cabbage. Fresh fruit and vegetables are popular and it is recommended that you make the most of the markets.
