Due to its geographical location in the centre of Europe, the Czech Republic is very much dependent on the quality of its transport infrastructure and its connection to neighbouring countries. However, a new study carried out by Raiffesienbank shows that the quality of roads in the Czech Republic is the sixth lowest in the European Union.
Between the years 2010 and 2017, the Czech Republic invested 120 billion crowns less than other similar-sized EU countries, suggests the Raiffeisenbank study. That sum translates into roughly 800 kilometres of highways.
