Bohemia in the Czech Republic

Bohemia comprises the roughly western two thirds of the Czech Republic.

Prior to 1918, it was a part of the Austrian Empire. It did have a separate membership in the International Ice Hockey Federation.

After 1918 its membership was assumed by Czechoslovakia.

The Bohemian national ice hockey team won the golden medals at the European championships in 1911 and 1914, years before Bohemia, a kingdom within Austria-Hungary, became a part of Czechoslovakia, another successful ice hockey superpower. After the split of Czechoslovakia, the Czech national ice hockey team continued the tradition of the Bohemian team. See also the Czechoslovak national ice hockey team.
