My parents were both Czechs and indeed married in dec 1945 in Prague. My Father fought for the RAF in the 311 Squadron and was decorated, (ended the war as praporčík and was posthumously promoted to plukovník in the late 1970s). After the war he flew for CSA and unfortunately was one of the Pilots who was involved in the Worlds First Triple Hijack of 3 Dakota Planes from CZ to ERDING in Germany. He was the Pilot from Brno :- http://www.time.com/time/magazine/artic ... 79,00.html Unfortunately in Jan 1951 after the various purges he was taken away from his family and was not heard of for several months and in April of 1951 when he arrived at my mums house and told her to pack and they were going, they walked from CZ to Germany where my dad re-enlisted in the RAF and they came to England in Aug 1951 , I was born a month later. Technically at the time of my birth both my parents still held czech nationality and citizenship and they did not get British citizenship till some years later. I am coming up to retirement age myself and have always been brought up Czech and have been so proud of my heritage that I always vowed one day that I would live there. Unfortunately both my parents have now died and I would like to know whether I would be able to apply for dual nationality or even citizenship on the grounds of my parents and their heredity. I hold an English passport and whilst I dont wish to give that up I would dearly love to hold a Czech one also. I have been to the Czech Republic more times than I can count, always for wither a few weeks or a few days. Now divorced and with my kids scattered round europe I would dearly love to retire there and with the Czech Republic now part of the EU I can still get my pension paid to me there and as I am also disabled I can get most of my money paid to me there. Can anyone let me know if this is possible or not ? Or would I have to go the long route by living there for several years ? My spoken Czech is good although like many there is a bit of Czenglish mixed in. I can get away with it in Czechoslovakia as people assume I am from a different region, but they understand me. My written is not that good as I was never taught the accents etc but i could pick that up. As the Czech republic is now separate from Slovakia, I will point out that although my dad always was Czech , he was born just inside Slovakia, whilst my mother was born in Bohemia.
