Czechia is the birthplace of many well-known people – such as , a member of Prague’s former underground literary and music movement and one of the country’s most significant contemporary authors.
Milena Jesenská, a journalist and astute political commentator, who is also known for her famous correspondence with Franz Kafka, was born here, too.
Czechia is a fairly densely populated country with approximately 133 persons per km2. Since everybody needs a roof over their head, why not make it a special one: According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Czechia has the most castles per square mile of any country in the world.
The capital city of Prague has the highest population of the country (1.3 Mio). Surprisingly, it is followed directly by Vienna and Chicago, in terms of cities with the largest number of Czech people.
