Over 70 percent of Czechs believe the foundation of Czechoslovakia after the collapse of the Austrian-Hungarian empire was the right approach. 

According to a public opinion poll conducted by the Median agency, the survey found that only 22 percent approve of the Munich agreement forcing Czechoslovakia to surrender its border regions to Germany in 1938. And an even lower share of respondents agree with the post-Second World War direction of the country and its alignment with the Soviet Union.

However, Czechs are divided when it comes to the question of the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993. A majority of respondents disapproved of the dissolution, while 40 percent of them agreed.

In general, Czech citizens favored accession to the EU in 2004 and to NATO in 1999, both receiving around two-thirds support, with a slightly better result for the latter.
