Region and its self-government

 

 
 

The Region

  • A geographically defined community of citizens which has the right to self-government 
  • A legal corporation under public law – acts in its own name in legal relations and bears the responsibility which ensues from such relations
  • Attends to the general development of its territory and the needs of its citizens, cooperates with municipalities (without interfering with their independent powers)
  • In the Czech Republic, regions were established in 2000 and they gradually assume a number of competences previously exercised by the state
  • The Czech Republic is divided into 14 higher territorial self-governing units (13 regions + the capital city of Prague)
