Bohemia is surrounded on three sides by mountainous landscape and borders Poland to the Northeast, Austria in the South, and Germany to the West. The region makes up nearly two-thirds of the Czech Republic and has always been a region in which religious and ethnic opposites meet. The bohemian cuisine, beer, and brass music are particularly famous. Typical cuisine includes dumplings, meat dishes, and sweet flour dishes as dessert.
The Krkonoše (Giant Mountains) is the highest mountain range in the Sudetes, on the border between Poland and the Czech Republic; the Sněžka reaches a height of 1,602 m. The Krkonoše has been a protected national park since 1959 (Poland) or 1963 (Czech Republic), respectively. Large areas of the Krkonoše are also protected under UNESCO as a biosphere reserve.
