Czech Republic: The Crossroads of European Culture (Countries of the World). Czech Republic. Golden Prague's thousands of literary allusions are unmistakable in the alleys of Mala Strana and Stare Mesto, and throughout the halls of the massive castle that overlooks the Vltava from the hilltop and has long been a symbol of power. Towns like Kutna Hora and Cesky Krumlov, which have been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, are full of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architectural treasures. Castles dot the historic regions of Bohemia and Moravia, looking as grim as fortresses high on rocky spurs or as graceful as fairytale palaces, and evoking centuries marked by the onslaughts of different armies. Elegant spas - Marienbad and Carlsbad, still evoke the aura of monarchs, writers and musical giants, like Antonin Dvorak the composer who, with Bedrich Smetana, led the 18th-century Czech renaissance in the field of music. The traditions of long-established ethnic minorities that survived attempts at standardization, first at the hands of the Hapsburgs and then of the regimes that ruled during the 20th century, are still very much alive. This is the difficult cultural heritage that the young little republic, established in 1993 following its friendly divorce from Slovakia after 74 years of dramatic events from the decline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to the Nazi and Soviet invasions - brought with it when it officially joined the European Union on May 1, 2004. And, this is the fascinating challenge that now faces the 10 million people who live in this country that is back in the heart of the Old Continent once more..
The Coasts of Bohemia: A Czech History A long-needed history of the Czech people that is also a remarkably original history of modern Europe, told from its uneasy center. Sayer shows that Bohemia has long been a theater of European conflict. It has been a cradle of Protestantism and a bulwark of the Counter-Reformation; an Austrian imperial province and a proudly Slavic national state; the most easterly democracy in Europe; and a westerly outlier of the Soviet bloc. The complexities of its location have given rise to profound, and often profoundly comic reflections on the modern condition. Franz Kafka, Jaroslav Hasek, Karel Capek and Milan Kundera are all products of its spirit of place. Sayer describes how Bohemia's ambiguities and contradictions are those of Europe itself, and he considers the ironies of viewing Europe, the West, and modernity from the vantage point of a country that has been too often ignored. The Coasts of Bohemia draws on an enormous array of literary, musical, visual, and documentary sources ranging from banknotes to statues, museum displays to school textbooks, funeral orations to operatic stage-sets, murals in subway stations to censors' indexes of banned books. It brings us into intimate contact with the ever changing details of daily life, the street names and facades of buildings, the heroes figured on postage stamps, that have created and recreated a sense of what it is to be Czech..
