Since 2000, the Czech Republic is divided into thirteen regions ( Czech : kraje , singular kraj ) and the capital city of Prague . Each region has its own elected Regional Assembly ( krajske zastupitelstvo ) and hejtman (usually translated as hetman or "president"). In Prague, their powers are executed by the city council and the mayor.

The older seventy-six districts ( okresy , singular okres ) including three "statutory cities" (without Prague, which had special status) lost most of their importance in 1999 in an administrative reform; they remain as territorial divisions and seats of various branches of state administration.
