Uh, if "In 1992 Czechoslovak Federative Republic is split into two separate countries: Czech Republic and Slovakia." then Czechoslovakia is no longer an actual destination... right? So I think this page needs to be nixed and the content moved to Czech Republic and Slovakia-- or am I missing something? (WT-en) Majnoona 00:20, 25 Feb 2004 (EST)

Do we keep old names? Or should this page be deleted? It's currently an orphan article. --(WT-en) Nzpcmad 19:05, 8 Jul 2004 (EDT)
I vote that we drop this article. No one can visit Czechoslovakia any longer. (WT-en) Chip 19:20, 8 Jul 2004 (EDT)
Yes they can. The political boundaries and names may have changed, but all the visitable places previously described as 'in Czechoslovakia' are still there. Names like this have significant inertia and don't go away quickly just because somebody changed some political boundaries. Consequently, and however erroneously, many people from outside still talk and think about Czechoslovakia; I confess to doing it myself sometimes. This article provides a useful routing mechanism for anybody who makes that mistake when entering a Wikivoyage search, and should be retained. -- (WT-en) Chris j wood 15:21, 11 Jul 2004 (EDT)
I only filled out this article because it was a "most wanted" article. It only exists to point people to other places. (WT-en) Goodralph 05:59, 11 Jul 2004 (EDT)

  • Czechoslovakia - old name - it's currently an orphan article. --(WT-en) Nzpcmad 04:17, 9 Jul 2004 (EDT)
    • Don't delete. The article is a useful sort-of-disambiguation page; I'd suggest making it into a proper disambiguation page which will also solve the orphan issue. -- (WT-en) Chris j wood 16:21, 9 Jul 2004 (EDT)
    • Don't delete. Pretty much what cjw says. Although it wouldn't make sense to make this a redirect to either the Czech Republic or Slovakia, a disambiguation-like page might be in order. --(WT-en) Evan 01:05, 10 Jul 2004 (EDT)
    • Keep as disambiguation page. -- (WT-en) Nils 08:05, 16 Jul 2004 (EDT)

Bit of a goofy mood[edit]

Instead of being informative about the seperation of Czechoslovakia into two states we replace the current text on the disamb page with this: "Unfortunately, as you were planning your trip this country ceased to exist. You may be interested in these two nations - Czech Republic and/or Slovakia, which have recieved high accolades from travellers and historians alike."? - (WT-en) Sapphire 23:32, 6 May 2006 (EDT)
