Czech Republic: Geography & Maps
A small, landlocked country located in Central Europe, the Czech Republic is bordered by Poland in the north, the Slovak Republic in the east, Austria in the south and Germany in the west. The country is divided into three historical regions: Bohemia in the west, Moravia in the southeast and a part of Silesia in the northeast. Bohemia is the largest of the regions covering approximately two-thirds of the country and hosts the capital city, Prague. Located on the banks of the Vltava River, Prague is the country’s largest city and serves as the commercial and cultural centre.
The Czech Republic hosts various mountain ranges including the Krkonoše, the Krusné Hory, Sŭmava, Hruby Jesenik and Moravian-Silesian Beskydy. Of these ranges, the highest peak is Sněžka which stands at 1,602m (5.256 ft). The longest river in the country is the Lahe which begins in the mountains in the northeast, travelling south, west and north before becoming the River Elbe.
