The New Presence website was started in 2012 due to the interest of non-Czech speakers in reading what Czechs themselves were writing about.
Initially the website featured exclusive translations of articles from our Czech mother version Přítomnost, which is now the leading analytical magazine in the Czech Republic (www.pritomnost.cz).
Over time, the number of English-language sources that cover the Czech and regional press has grown. As such, this website archives key articles, past and present, that focus on key central European issues.
Additionally, from time to time, we do post reprints of current articles from other sources, which we feel are unique and important in understanding this region.
