As a result, '''TJ Slovan Liberec''' was formed on '''12 July 1958'''. With this name, the football club affirmed the Czech (Czechoslovakia) character of the club as well as the region where it played. The very first competitor the newly created team faced was Spartak Praha Sokolovo, as the famous team Sparta Prague was called at the time. Slovan lost 0:3. Despite of all its efforts, for a long time Slovan Liberec was unsuccessful in its fight for a place in the premier league. At certain stages of its history, it was even relegated to the regional division or third league. After overcoming the financial crisis that the club found itself in following the 1989 "Velvet Revolution", Slovan Liberec finally had the chance to gain promotion to the top league. Following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the six best teams in the second league were elevated to the newly created Czech (Czech Republic) premier league. Slovan ascended to the first league with the formation of the Czech league (Gambrinus Liga) in 1993, and has maintained this position ever since. In the 1990s the club achieved a series of mid-table finishes. The club reached Divize, the fourth level, in 1986 and the 2.

It crosses the Danube at Tulln and extends from there to Krems (Krems an der Donau) and to the border at Gmünd (Gmünd, Lower Austria). In Bohemia, it continued through České Budějovice, Tábor and Benešov to Prague. Prague's present main station originally belonged to Franz Josef Railway. Various district capitals are only connected to it by bylines. A new station at Gmünd had to be built in 1919, after part of the town had become part of Czechoslovakia (''České Velenice''). After World War II, the line lost a lot of importance because of the Iron Curtain. However, trains to Prague and Berlin used it through the mid-90s. Today, the Franz Josef Railway is only used for regional trains, as trains to Prague leave at Wien Südbahnhof. '''František Plánička''' (
