The paper examines the development of sacred structures in rural Czechia. They could be associated with the creation of important symbols and distinctive rural regional identities. Rural Czechia is not uniform : it represents several different rural landscapes. The paper considers whether sacred structures support the idea of multiple and fundamentally different rural areas. Five types of rural, religious landscapes are identified, supporting the idea that multiple types of rural areas exist in Czechia.
