Many things about Texas culture came from Czech influence. The accordion, so popular in Tejano music, is believed to have come from the use of the instrument in Czech polkas. Kolache shops flourish in Central Texas and in the Hill Country. Many places with Czech heritage continue to celebrate it with festivals or museums honoring the immigrants to the area. Though not the largest immigrant group to come to Texas, the Czechs have made a lasting impact on the state.
