Answer . In the summer of 1938, Germany and Czechoslovakia began to quarrel over the disputed border area of the Sudetenland.
Czechoslovakia officially split into two countries on 1st of January 1993. There was no war, nor any sort of ethnic conflict preceding the split, the decision largely made by "political elites," namely Vaclav Klaus (Czech) and Vladimir Meciar (Slovak), who then proceeded to become Prime Ministers of… the newly independent countries. There was no referendum and opinion polls showed that people were largely ambivalent on the issue. The pro-split politicians in Slovakia argued that the split was necessary because Slovakia, the smaller part of the Czechoslovak Federation, was often neglected economically, the more important manufacturing factories placed in Czech Republic, while Slovakia's economy was based on agriculture and processing of raw materials. The two countries are historically different (the Czech republic historically part of Austria, while Slovakia was under Hungarian rule), have different (though quite similar) languages and are also dissimilar religiously, Slovakia overwhelmingly Catholic, while the Czechs have a large Protestant minority. . -Alicia (MORE)

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, while 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.

This is actually what happened before Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia: "The British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain flew to Munich to have words with Hitler ! And returned home with a piece of paper & the idea of 'Peace in our Time.' Hindsight shows just how wrong this was, but of course they ha…d hoped for a very different outcome. This was called Appeasement. For obvious reasons, WW1 was less than 20 years before, they hoped to avoid another panEuropean war, and I suppose it shows just how easy it is to be wise after the event. Certainly there was hostility towards Hitler in Britain & France, but I think most people really just hoped for the best, what else could they do anyway ? As for the people in Czechoslovakia they weren't really given any choice." After this is when Hitler actually betrayed the Munich Pact. He had agreed to leave Czech alone after gaining the Sudetenland and Neville Chamberlain was dumb enough to believe that. But Hitler went back on the deal and invaded the Czechs anyway. (MORE)

In September 1938 the German chancellor Adolf Hitler had already united Austria to Germany and wanted to bring the Sudeten Germans under his rule. The mountains surrounding Bohemia (the Czech part of Czechoslovakia) were populated by ethnic Germans but the boundary was drawn in favor of the Czechs f…or defensive purposes. The British and French premiers met Hitler in Munich and agreed to the change of boundary, and the Sudetenland was annexed to Germany. But in March 1939 Hitler then occupied Bohemia and Moravia as a protectorate (not annexed), Slovakia was nominally made independent but its government was protected by Germany, and Ruthenia, the easternmost part of Czechoslovakia, was annexed to Hungary.

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 isnÂ´t. Czechoslovakia was one state until 1992. It has arisen Czech republic and Slovakia in 1993. By the way, capital of Czechoslovakia was Prague (Praha).

Czechoslovakia was one of the founding members of the UN, joining on the 24th of October, 1945. During the Prague Spring crisis, the US, the UK, France, Canada, Denmark and Paraguay applied to the UNSC for a special meeting. Solutions were proposed, but the presence of the USSR on the Security Cou…ncil vetoed any UN action. Immediately after the first failed resolution, Canada asked the United Nations to send a representative to Czechoslovakia to work towards the release of all incarcerated Czech leaders. When the dissolution of the nation was imminent, the Permanent Representative informed the Secretary General that the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic (as it became known in 1990) would cease to exist and that the Czech Republic and Slovakia, would apply to membership. They became party to all the treaties previously signed by Czechoslovakia. Summary - Not many. As often was the case, the presence of the USSR on the Security Council blocked condemnations of atrocities behind the Iron Curtain, as the US' and Russia presence shields their allies today. (MORE)

Czecho-Slovakia- originally hyphenated ( a Judge agreed, and he was a former Air Force officer ( probably JAG). - well it was once part of the top-heavy Austro-Hungarian Empire. After World War I- it was configured as a republic, Industries were rebuilt, etc. It has remained a republic under and aft…er the Communist regime. They had heraldic designs, but as Czechoslovakia proper- were always a Republic- No Crowned heads here. Possibly Historical flags may have been flown at former palaces for historical reasons alone-Like the embattled Southern Cross of the CSA! . The Italian Navy still uses the Triple Crown flag though the Empire was voted down in l946. Tradition in this case, sails on. (MORE)
