Entomology, the study of insects, has a long and rich history in the Czech Republic. The first written mentions date back to the 16th century, when physicians and pharmacologists, in particular, became interested in insects.
Per capita, we have the highest number of registered professional and amateur entomologists in the world. In second place is Japan, where collections are handed down from generation to generation like samurai swords.
