2018 is no ordinary year for our Republic. 100 years since the founding of the Czechoslovak Republic, 50 since the Prague Spring (1968) and other historical anniversaries (1938 and 1948). All have fundamentally shaped national identity and ordinary people’s destinies. Come with us to revisit the recent past and the fateful eights of our stormy 20th century.

Our visually rich and varied anniversary "digest" Prague:1918-1992 draws your attention to interesting buildings, works of art, monuments and other things of note that bring Prague’s Czechoslovak era to mind. Great for a casual read or as a source of travel inspiration -- why not celebrate Czechoslovakia's 100th birthday with this fun booklet?

Additionally, our downloadable brochure Prague: 1918-2018  details the history of Czechoslovakia, its most important figures and places associated with its founding. A handy list of major events commemorating the anniversary rounds out the content.

The brochure and digest are both available at our tourist and information centres or via our e-shop.
