CZECHIA - New official short geographic name for the Czech Republic

Following the Resolution No. 403 of the Government of the Czech Republic on May 2, 2016, the Czech Republic officially uses also the abbrevation “Czechia”.

Despite many rumors and incorrect information published in several international newspapers, the full country name "Czech Republic" ("Česká republika") will remain the country's official political name. "Czechia" will be used only as the English version of the short country name "Česko". It is up to each entity to decide whether to use the short version ("Česko/Czechia") or long version (Česká republika/Czech Republic").
