Until 1993, Czech Republic and Slovakia formed one country. Nowadays the country is an independent republic. Since Czech Republic became independent, the country has gradually evolved into an economically stable country. Tourism has certainly contributed to this. In Pilsen you can find the origin of a world known type of beer (lager) and in Brno you can enjoy live motor and car races. Prague has beautiful and historic architecture. The capital offers a mix of both worlds (east and west), which is appreciated by foreign tourists. The largest airport in Czech Republic is located near Prague. The other Czech airports are used much less.
