Mozart and the Czech tourism

“My citizens of Prague understand me,” once Mozart said.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, maybe best composer ever, really liked Prague and Bohemia. And now there is struggle between Czechtourism agency and Austrian Freedom party. Freedom party wants to remove from Austria Czechtourism billboards that says “Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart stayed in the Czech Lands five times. What about you?”

Party objects that “The Czechs are trying to create the impression that the Czech Republic always existed on its present territory. But, Mozart never visited the Czech Republic. You could only say he visited Bohemia and Prague was considered a German city at the time.”

But Czech historians point out that name for this country as Czech has been normal since the Renaissance.
