What is the meaning of Czechoslovakia?
When the Austro-Hungarian empire was broken up after WW1, the Czech and Slovak and Ruthenian peoples in the northern part of the empire (but not the Polish people in Galicia, the furthest north) were formed into a new country that had never existed in that form before. It was called Czechoslovakia. The Czechs were the most highly developed and the richest, so they dominated the country. In 1939 the Ruthenian part of the country was transferred to Hungary and in 1945 to Ukraine. Soon after the end of Communism in 1990, the Czechs and Slovaks formed separate countries, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. That is why you won't find Czechoslovakia on the latest maps of Europe.

Czechoslovakia broke up in what contemporary observers, then, and historians now, call the Velvet Divorce. Ethnic and linguistic differences were the main factors. This occure…d shortly after the Berlin Wall was opened, so late 1989 1990.
Czechoslovakia is a sovereign state in central Europe.
Prague was Czechoslovakia's capital from 1918 until the country split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in January 1, 1993. It remained the capital of the Czech Republic, w…hile Bratislava became the capital of Slovakia. Czechoslovakian reformers adopted shock therapy, an abrupt economic reform toward free-market economics, lowering trade barriers, removing price controls, and ending subsidies to state-owned businesses, but also increasing inflation and unemployment in the process. This sudden shift caused a dispute between the country's two parts, eventually separating them, despite President VÃ¡clav Havel's urge for unity. * Poland was occupied by Germany and the Soviet Union from 1938 until near the end of World War II (January, 1945). Kosice, a city in eastern Czechoslovakia, became a temporary residence for the Czechoslovak Government, and later also for the President of Czechoslovakia, until the liberation of Prague in May 1945.
Czechoslovakia is now divided into the Czech Republic and Slovakia and are both located on the European continent.
