Country Description

The Czech Republic became an independent country in January of 1993 as a result of the breakup of Czechoslovakia. This 78,000 sq. km country is situated in the eastern part of Europe between Austria, Germany, Poland and the Slovakian Republic. The country is often called "the roof" of Europe as most of the rivers of neighboring countries find their source in the Czech Republic. Many years of living under communist control have negatively effected the population's thinking about God and religion. More than half of the 10.8 million inhabitants claim to have no association with any religion. 11% of Czechs claim a connection to the Catholic Church and only 2% identify with Protestantism.
