The Czech Republic, also known by its short-form name Czechia and formerly known as Bohemia, is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It is bordered by Austria to the south, Germany to the west, Poland to the northeast, and Slovakia to the southeast. The Czech Republic has a hilly landscape that covers an area of 78,871 square kilometres (30,452 sq mi) with a mostly temperate continental and oceanic climate. Czech Republic, or Czechia as it's uncommonly referred to, still exudes the air of a country that's been relatively untouched by swarms of tourism and fanfare. Despite an enigmatic reputation, the Czech Republic is home to a long list of Europe's most renowned music festivals, whether it's owed to an imperious lineup, being a hedonistic haven for a dedicated demographic, or merely due to an awe-inspiring locale.
