The article presents the most significant territorial divisions of the contemporary Czech Republic with respect to the Czechs’ subjective perception of them, as well as in comparison with the divisions found in Poland. The author focuses on the differences in the perception of the following territorial dichotomies: the capital – the peripheries, the city and town – the village, the borderland previously inhabited by Germans (commonly referred to as the Sudetes Region and known even more widely as Sudetenland) – the interior of the state, and the perception of the cultural, historical, religious and administrative regions. All of the issues discussed are documented by statistical data and the author’s own research, as well as observations made by the author who has lived in the country since his birth
