Description The chapter identifies commonalities as well as specific features of the Czech experience and reflections of the “Turkish threat” in the context of Central Europe. It reviews the financial and military role of the Czech Lands in the defense of the Habsburg Monarchy and comments on the image of the “Turkish threat” present in the local discourse. Despite numerous similarities, the Czech case differs from that of other parts of Central Europe directly exposed to a long-term continuous contact with the Ottomans. In comparison, the examined phenomena are not as fundamentally imbedded in the Czech collective identity.
