Moravians in Czechia and Czech Wine Regions

Moravians in Czechia and Czech Wine Regions

‘Czech Republic (Česká republika = Česko) is basically Bohemia (actual Czechia/Čechy/Böhmen/Czechy) + Moravia (Morava/Mähren/Morawy) + a little part of Silesia. And there were two different narods here: Bohemians and Moravians.

It’s Czech Republic, non Czech-Moravian, becouse Bohemia has just dominated Moravia in the medieval (look at Poland and Lithuania some centuries later). After fall of Holy Roman Empire there wasn’t any independent and even dependent state of Moravia, becouse it was a part of Bohemia. Bohemian culture is the strongest in current Czech Republic. Name “Česko” was previously an adjective, not the noun (same with for example “Polska”) and comes from “Čechy” (Bohemia), so it basically means “Bohemian (land)”.‘–Hulvester
