      Hi Romana,
      there is a new dictonary site at http://www.e-slovniky.cz , but only the general dictionaries are free and you have to pay for access to technical dictionaries.

      Hope this helps,
      Martin

        I sometimes use the dictionary at http://web.volny.cz

        However, I find myself using http://www.slovnik.cz much more often
        now, partly because its results are much less surrealistic than the
        ones at Volny, and also because it allows lookups without using carky
        and hacky, so I don't have to keep switching keyboards to go from my
        English translation to the dictionary.

          I've come to prefer http://slovnik.seznam.cz/, but also use Centrum.cz
          Slovníky - vyhledávání <http://slovniky.centrum.cz/search.php>,
          http://web.volny.cz/najdito/slovnik/, and
          http://www.websters-online-dictionary.org/translation/Czech/index.html.

          I agree with Jamie's comments: ALL the online-dictionaries should be used
          with EXTREME CAUTION!!! The nonsense in the Czech to English component is
          mind-boggling. If you're Czech check!
