CZECHIA - Articles about the name
Czechia (read ˈtʃɛki.ə) is the official English short-form and geographical name of the Czech Republic. The name was registered by the United Nations and included in the UNO Gazetteers of Geographical Names from the beginning of the modern Czech state in 1993. The name "Czech Republic", is the administratively-political name of the state, while Czechia, is the denomination for the geographical and settlement-historical unit, which is independent of actual political regimes and is therefore from this point of view neutral. Geographical name of the state represents permanency and timelessness of the statehood, regardless of political structure. Using only the political name represents all we don´t want - transiency, instability and historical discontinuity. The history of Czechia is the history of all existence of our state, the history of the Czech Republic respresents only time from the origin of this state formation, then, since 1993 until now. Thus, the Czech republic is nothing more, than the current state formation in CZECHIA.
