Prague Halal Guide: Mosques, Restaurants & Muslim Food Shops

History of Islam in the Czech Republic

Mosque in Lednice, Czech RepublicThe first person acknowledging Islam visited Prague around 964-965 was ibrahim ibn Jaqub, a merchant from Al Andalus (Spain under the Muslim ruling). His memoirs were later published to become one of the first accounts about Prague and Central Europe in the Islamic world. Later on, during both sieges of Vienna, Ottoman army reached Moravia and commerce between Austria-Hungary and Ottoman Empire rose by the 19th century.

A law from 1912 recognized Islam as "state religion" and officially allowed its presence in the region. The first Muslim community was established in 1934. In 1991 the Center of Muslim communities was established and mosques were opened in Prague and Brno. In 2004 Islam was officially registered and the community is thus eligible to obtain funds from the state.
