The country’s cultural groups include Czech (64.3%), Moravian (5%), and Slovak (1.4%) with Roman Catholicism as the primary religion. The Czech people enjoy socializing in neighborhood pubs, drinking their world famous Czech beer, connecting with family and friends. January 1st, 1993 is celebrated as the day of the founding of the Czech Republic, as separate from the former country of Czechoslovakia.
