Ahoj!

It's very interesting to know that we - the Czechs - have "typical" appearance:)) I think you can find all ethnic types among the Czechs. A Czech can look like a typical Swede as well as a typical Italian. But I've heard about quite an interesting story about the Czech look: Reinhard Heydrich was deeply angry with the Czechs for looking more nordic than the inhabitants of Bavaria according to the racial research he ordered.

I like this characterization of the Czech look I read in the book called "Nebe pod Berlínem" about - "The Czechs are made of Slavonic mucles, German skelet and Celtic spirit!Smile

Jirka:)

I am around quite a few Czech Americans because the Catholic parish that I belong to in the states has many families that came from Czech lands.

Seems to me that physical traits can be all over the board but there does seem to be a tendency toward eyes that are blue, gray, or hazel rather than brown. Most hair color seems to be a shade of brown.

The most prominent feature though seems to be a nose that is usually longer and perhaps more noticeable compared to Euros farther west or north.

Having sais this, though, I be if you gave me a picture of 10 people with 5 Czechs in it, I would have trouble picking out the Czechs.

Regards to everyone,
Dan

I'm half Czech, a quarter Bavarian, and a quarter Hungarian, and both my parents have light brown hair and dark eyes. My hair, however, is almost black, and my eyes are darker. does anyone know which of my nationalities this comes from?

It is your Hungarian blood - dark hair, dark eyes... and maybe quick-tempered as well?

These well-defined cheekbones (which I would probably describe as "Germanic") tend to make guys very attractive, but give a little too much robustness to girls, IMHO.

well, I was speaking only of cheekbones, not of Czech girls, I hardly know any!

Well, but I think marked cheek-bones are one of many reasons why Czech girls are very successful in (top)modeling. Very Happy

I was often told I looked Czech, although I am 1/2 English/Scottish/Welsh, 1/4 Danish, and 1/4 German. Hmm ...

Some people considered me to be a German (somewhen even a French), though I'm 3/4 Czech and 1/4 Slovak. Very Happy
