This is a map of the Czech Republic's geography and major cities.
Around the World View
This is a world view of the Czech Republic.
Features Of The Czech Republic
Major rivers include the Vltava which is the Czech Republic's longest river with a length of 430 kilometers, the Elbe (or Labe) River with a length of 370 kilometers, the Morava River with a length of 284 kilometers, and the Ohre with a length of 256 kilometers.
The climate generally depends on how high you are above sea level. The higher you are, average temperatures may drop more and rainfall is more likely. The weather generally stays the same throughout the year. Temperatures vary greatly over the course of the seasons. The average high is 20-23 degrees Celsius, and the average low is 10-11 degrees Celsius in the summer. In the winter, the high is 7 degrees Celsius and the low is 5-2 degrees Celsius.
Government and Foreign Policy
The Czech Republic is entering into the Michalak case. Two children were taken away from their mother and taken to the Child Welfare Service of Norway. The mother was Eva Michalakova.
The citizen rights of the people of the Czech Republic are that they can vote when they are 18, they may not be sentenced to deportation, and they cannot be refused access to the country. The Czech Republic must provide citizens with diplomatic protection, so the rights that they have are similar to the rights of those that live in the United States.
The Czech Republic is a proud member of the United Nations and it gives aid to and receives aid from many foreign countries.
Some imports and exports from the Czech Republic are raw materials, oil, gas, semi-manufactured and semi-finished products, consumer goods and capital goods.
The GDP per capita in the Czech Republic is about $27,000.
I do not believe that my country is rich compared to the United States because the GDP of the U.S. is $16.77 trillion dollars and the Czech Republics is only 208.8 billion dollars.
Social and Ethnic Groups
The educational system in the Czech Republic is very good. The constitution of the Czech Republic states that all have the right to education at primary, secondary, and university level. Because of the high priority given to education, very few people cannot read or write. The literacy rate among both men and women averages to about 99% of the population.
Women and children have the same rights as they do in the United States, which means that all women and children have the same rights as men under the law. Also, the freedoms in the Czech Republic are equal among men and women, just like in the United States and many other countries.
Religion, Language, Country Flag
The Czech Republic's flag was borrowed from the bohemian's coat of arms. The white color represents the peaceful and honest nature of the Czech people. The red symbolizes valor, courage and noble patriotic spirit. The blue represents the values of vigilance, truth, loyalty and perseverance. The flag was adopted from Czechoslovakia on March 30th, 1920 when the country was split.
Traditional Holidays, Festivals, Clothing and Food
Each ethnic group has a different type of apparel which is traditionally a dress for women that carries ethnic patterns.
Some of the traditional food that the Czech's make is not very healthy but it will always be eaten in the Czech Republic. Some of the traditional foods are potato soup, garlic soup, chicken noodle soup, beef soup with liver dumplings, sauerkraut soup, and goulash soup.
