Czech Republic

 

The Czech Republic is ideally situated in the middle of Europe, and shares borders with Germany, Poland, Austria, and Slovakia. The seat of the government is located in the city of Prague. The country is made up of three main regions Moravia, Silesia and Bohemia, and each possesses magnificent natural beauty. This is due to the extensive mountain ranges that surround them.

Serious scientific research has put the Czech Republic at the forefront of modern medicine. Czech scientists have made ground-breaking discoveries, expanding the frontiers of human awareness, and impacting the lives of everyone on the planet. In 2002, a chemist Antonín Holý fabricated a new drug for hepatitis B, a disease responsible for killing nearly one million people worldwide. Another discovery is a drug that extends the lives of AIDS patients and replaces the 13 pills they have to take.

On a lighter note, Czech Republic has a lot to offer its visitors also.  The amenities in Prague are as good as those found in any European capital, outside the capital standards vary. The Czech Republic is a peaceful place. Civil disorders are almost unheard of and it is relatively free of terrorist episodes.
