Excuse me, it's more Czech than Jablunkov local custom tip - I will transfer it to my new Czech page, soon!

Yes, they are but not as much as in my homecountry Poland where 95% of population declare to be Roman catholic (75% practicing). I rarely noticed churches full of prayers on Sunday holy masses in Czech. Generally more to the east more religious they were.
I found numerous
small chapels, holy crosses and statues of saints located by local Czech highways - look at my picture taken in Jablunkov. They were often renovated and decorated with fresh flowers.

Religion in Czech Republic:
- atheist 39.8%,
- Roman Catholic 39.2%,
- Protestant 4.6%,
- Orthodox 3%,
- other 13.4%.
What a difference with Poland where 95% are Roman Catholic (about 75% practising).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
