There is an outstanding number of Czech immigrants in the UK. Many of them come from the previous political entity of Czechoslovakia and arrived in the country as refugees during World War II. In fact, the last census recorded almost 35,000 Czechs in England. The UK has many famous filmmakers, footballers, architects, and more, who were either born in the Czech Republic and relocated or have Czech ancestry. It comes as no surprise, then, that the Czech communities in the country are quickly expanding.
