Czech Language History

In the 6th century, Slavic tribes migrated to the land mass that is known today as the Czech Republic. The ethnicity of people living in the Czech lands have not changed significantly since the 6th century as the current population is made up of people of Slavic descent. People from these Slavic tribes settled in the Czech Republic and many of the surrounding regions such as Poland, Slovakia and Austria. From nearby regions, the neighboring tribes under the Hungarian rule came and took over the Czech lands, which ended the Moravian Empire. This led to the first dynastic rule of Czech territory, the Premyslids Dynasty. For the next few centuries, the Czech territory was dominated by a long line of rulers under the Bohemian empire whom were constantly at war. In 1348, King Charles IV of Luxembourg founded the Charles University in Prague, one of Europe’s earliest institutions of its kind. However, due to religious turmoil in the region about King Charles IV ties to the Roman Catholic Church, he lost power.

In 1917 during the first World War, the Czech territories were at a divide between the Russians and the Austro-Hungarian kingdom. Many Czech soldiers opposed the Austro-Hungarian motive and did not fight against the Russians. After the first World War, Czechoslovakia was no longer under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. At this transitional period in the regions history, Czech and Slovak communities joined together and established Czechoslovakia as a sovereign country. In 1918, under the rule of Czechoslovakia’s first president, Tomas Masaryk, people from multiple different regions were able to come together and establish a region unharmed by outside forces. Unfortunately, the peace was unable to remain a constant in Czechoslovakia, and in 1938, Hitler and the German army invaded the Czechoslovakian territory. The effect of the invasion was devastating and it led to the beginning of the end for the Czechoslovak Republic.

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and remains a city with strong ties to European history. The numerous museums, churches and even castles that the city has been able to preserve throughout history have made Prague a popular tourist attraction. The Prague Castle is an important landmark in the city and also serves as a tourist attraction. In recent history, the Czech region has played a major role in both World Wars and was under Soviet control during the Cold War. Prague is not a seaport due to the country’s landlocked status in eastern Europe. The central location of Prague in Europe and its proximity to the Vltava river both make up for its distance to the ocean.
