František Kupka and "Czech Republic"
František Kupka lived in time when some state with the name "Czech Republic" did not exist. I would like to inform you, that our country has geographical name, which can be used for any period in history. Call our country Czechia, please. Our country has more than 1200 years old history and only very small part of it is the history of republican system. Leave that cold and clumsy formal name Czech Republic for politics. Czechia is a geographical name, which is independent on time and state-political changes in the country, thus, it can be used for our country both in historical and contemporary context.
Jan Blanický, Prague, Czechia
We use name of the country in terms of moderm geography. Onterwise, there would be a lot of problems with all previous names of German territory, Middle East empires, and so on.
