Although we are a small country, some of our products have created a very good reputation to us, such as beer from the town of Plzeň called Pilsner, or the car/automobile brand Skoda.

There are also several personalities who are famous outside our republic, some of them even all over the world/in the whole world. We can name/mention Jaromír Jágr, a hockey player, Václav Havel, a dramatist and our former president, Miloš Forman, an Oscar film director, and last but not least professor Wichterle who invented contact lenses. Generally, we can be proud of great sportsmen, artists and clever brains. Some of which invented also the infamous semtex and brought a new meaning to the word “tunnel” – a metaphor for a way of stealing money from banks and companies.
