Czech Republic

Poland and the Czech Republic are both members of the European Union and NATO. Both joined the EU simultaneously on 1 May 2004. They also both joined NATO on 12 March 1999. Both countries form together with Slovakia and Hungary the Visegrad group, which is an important regional group in Central Europe.

They share 796 km (495 mi) of common border, which can be crossed anywhere without border control due to the Schengen Agreement.

Jan Pastwa is the Polish Ambassador to Prague.[1] Jan Sechter is the Czech Ambassador to Warsaw.[2]

In a 2010 poll conducted by CVVM in Czech Republic, relations with Poland were ranked as the second best after Slovakia, out of 13 countries, with 92% of respondents viewing them as very good or rather good.[3]
