Zivnostenska banka
Building in Prague  


Živnostenská Banka (ZIBA) was established in 1868 and is the oldest bank in the Czech Republic. It was the first bank in the Austro-Hungarian Empire to be financed entirely by Czech capital. In 1945, the Czechoslovak government nationalized Zivnostenska banka, together with all other Czech banks. In 1992, ZIBA was the first bank in Central and Eastern Europe to be privatized. Since 2002, it has been a member of the Italian UniCredit Group. In 2007, Zivnostenska banka was acquired by HVB Bank and new bank was named UniCredit Bank Czech Republic. As of April 30, 2011, ZIBA had over 85 branches and 131 ATMs across the country.
