Czech Republic: Culture
The people of the Czech Republic can be quite formal and reserved and this translates itself into greetings. A handshake is the customary greeting and although the people are always polite, they do not often move to a first-name basis unless they know a person very well. In traditional Czech pubs, it is not uncommon to share tables with people. Most people in major cities speak English, however, outside the city, knowing a bit of the Czech language can go a long way.
Czech is the official language of the country, but English, German, Hungarian, Romani and Polish are also spoken in some parts around the country.
The religion with the largest following in the Czech Republic is Roman Catholicism. Other religions recognized in the country are Protestantism, Reformed, Lutheran, Methodist, Unity of Czech Brothers and Baptist with a small Jewish minority.
