I'm mostly of Czech descent. Here's what I've read and heard about the country from multiple sources: Czechs drink copious amounts of beer My mother says this. My father told me this. Almost every single website or message forum about Czech culture I've ever seen mentions this. --------- Czechs tend to be tall Several people at the myspace Czech forum have claimed that Czechs tend to be tall. My parents both told me that Czechs are average height for white people. I suppose Czechs tend to be tall compared to, say, Asians and Latinos. I am only 5'1". ------------ Czechs don't smile much They say that if one smiled when the Czech Republic ( or maybe the country was called Czechoslovakia then) was part of the Soviet Union, people would wonder what you might have in your house that you're smiling about. And it could encourage someone to break in your house. -------------- Czechs don't work as hard as Americans That's what they say at myspace. ---------------- Czech women are beautiful I don't think that Czech women tend to be more or less pretty than the average woman of other nationalities. I think that people do this "our women are the prettiest" for every nationality.
