Popis Purpose: This paper aims to address the lack of international knowledge and research in interdisciplinary curriculum development and teaching in the subjects of Physical Education and Geography. The aim of this international study, between universities from the Czech Republic and the Republic of Slovenia, focuses on a comparison curricula and of questionnaire survey outcomes among teachers in these subjects. Methods: The authors analysed and compared elementary school curricular documents from two ex-communist countries, the Czech Republic and the Republic of Slovenia, to reveal how integration of Physical Education and Geography can be embedded at the policy level. A questionnaire survey among teachers examined how the integrated curriculum is implemented in practice. Results: The findings of the study indicate that while interdisciplinarity is an important policy goal of the educational systems of these two countries, integration is not being implemented in practice. Conclusion: The type of learning experience we have while in school underpins how we integrate everything we learn, as well as how we transfer knowledge and skills from one experience to another.
