If you thrive for Czech- and Slovak-related websites, this site is just for you. You will not only find here interesting articles related to both countries, but also links to other organizations and clubs, their events and announcements. Creators of the website, Daniela Olszova and Paul Nelson, are Czech/Americans that have a passion for their culture, language and the heritage. The authors speak fluent Czech and English and have much to contribute to this site. They run the website as a hobby and thanks to volunteers and fans they are able to maintain an efficient website that has great potential to engage many people interested in reading, learning and sharing information about these two countries and things related to them.
All articles published on CzechFolks.com are bilingual; therefore, everybody who speaks Czech or English, or is learning either of the languages, can take advantage of the site and its content. Readers can comment on articles or post their events and announcements in the public forums that are connected with the calendar of the current and future events. Most of the articles are written by the founders of the website, however, other readers are already engaging in creating the content for the site.
Most of the volunteers are expats that primarily speak Czech which lead to the creation of a new magazine called CzechFolks.com PLUS; containing articles from more than 20 authors: lawyers, writers, journalists, poets, actors, photographers, teachers, politicians, composers, editors, but also blue-collar workers. They write their own stories and reactions to the happenings in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, which also include politics, entertainment, and favorite places for tourists and outdoor lovers. Their stories are enriched by beautiful illustrations that are exclusively created for the site by professional illustrators and artists.
