Czech Casino Laws

Gambling is legal in the Czech Republic.

In fact, the Czech Republic is home to one of the largest concentrations of casinos in Central and Eastern Europe. The 1990's saw a large expansion in the Czech casino industry. 2005 saw a legislative backlash in the Czech legislature, as new laws were passed that would reduce the number of casinos in the republic.

Due to this fact, some of the 65 casinos found in the Czech Republic might not be in business in a year or two. Visit here for updates on this casino information.

Facts About the Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is considered one of the Eastern European countries which is most western in outlook. The republic consists of two major regions: Bohemia and Moravia. The Czech Republic borders four other nations: Germany, Austria, Poland and Slovakia.

Legal History of the Czech Republic

The Czech lands were annexed to the Habsburg Empire in 1526, and remained under Habsburg rule nearly 400 years, until the Austro-Hungarian Empire dissolved in 1918 at the end of World War I.

The Treaty of Versailles placed the Czechs in a country along with the Slovakians. The Slovakians and the Czechs were considered Catholic-leaning slavs, and therefore deserved to share a nation in Central Europe. The Slovaks had been under Hungarian instead of Austrian rule and therefore had a different culture and economy. This caused tensions in the newly-formed Czechoslovakia.

Despite these tensions, Czechoslovakia was considered the most democratic nation in Eastern Europe in the interwar period, and the Czechs had alliances with both France and the Soviet Union. Czech defense measures came to naught when Nazi Germany demanded the "return" of the Sudetenland to the German Reich, because the mountain region had several million German-speaking Czechoslovakian subjects. This came to pass, while the Slovaks were encouraged by Hitler to dissolve their ties to Czechoslovakia a half year later.

After World War II, the Soviets placed a communist government in control, reinstituting Czechoslovakia. This union would last until the Velvet Revolution of 1989. This was called a velvet revolution because the changeover to democracy was peacefully done. In these years, the Czechs and Slovaks dissolved their uneasy bonds, and the Czech Republic was born.

The Czech Republic is a western-style democracy that has joined the European Union and the NATO Alliance.
