Why is the word "there" used in the above clause? Firstly I thought that the sentence has the wrong word order ("which are there") but in this case it is not the structure "there is" but "to be to" and "there" functions in the sentence as an adverb. But to which "place" does "there" refer to. Is it the Czech republic about which the article is?
