Synopsis

Czech Republic by Jacob Rihosek

Before 1989 the Czech Republic was governed by the Soviet Union and its people lived under Communist rule. In the years since 1989, when the Soviet Union ceased to exist, the Czech people have experienced great changes. The capital city, Prague has become a leading tourist destination, and people have the freedom to work for themselves, and not the state. However, the Czech Republic still has problems. The environment still suffers from flooding and pollution. Can the government rise to the challenge to control environmental issues? Meet the people of the Czech Republic and learn about the diversity of their lives, from an environmentalist in Cheb to a construction engineer in Olomouc. Includes maps and graphic panels showing statistics and fact boxes about size, flag, population, religion, currency and language.>
