Facts about Czech Republic
The Czech Republic is a landlocked country in Central Europe and a member state of the European Union. The country has borders with Poland to the north, Germany to the northwest and west, Austria to the south, and Slovakia to the east. The capital and largest city is Prague, a major tourist destination.
The Czech Republic is a pluralist multi-party parliamentary representative democracy. The Prime Minister is the head of government. The Parliament has two chambers — the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate.
The Czech Republic has a temperate, continental climate with relatively hot summers and cold, cloudy winters, usually with snow. Even within the Czech republic, temperatures vary a lot depending on the altitude. In general, at higher altitudes the temperatures decrease and precipitation increases. The coldest month is usually January followed by February and December. The warmest month of the year is July, followed by August and June.
One of the most stable and prosperous of the post-Communist states, the Czech Republic has been recovering from recession since mid-1999. Growth in 2000-2001 was led by exports to the European Union, especially Germany, and foreign investment, while domestic demand is reviving. The country is scheduled to fully implement the Schengen Agreement and therefore abolish the border controls with all of its neighbors (Germany, Austria, Poland, Slovakia) as of 31 December 2007.
