      Czech Republic National Day

    • On their National Day, Czechs commemorate the independence of the Czechoslovak Republic vis-à-vis the Empire of Austria-Hungary obtained in 1918. Czechs and Slovaks created together Czechoslovakia, becoming independent on 28 October 1918. Then, during World War II, the country was under German domnation. In 1948, a Communist putsch led the country into isolation for 40 years before returning to democracy in 1989, during the "velvet revolution."
      On 1 January 1993, the Czech Republic split from Slovakia to create two independent states: the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
