Yes, the article does exist in Czech language!

No, it doesn't.
If you use the demonstrative adjective, it can sometimes been translated as "the", but it is still just an expression of an exclamation or emphasis and usually dispensable in the sentence.

"Ten", "ta", "to" are not systematically used as an article and an overuse of these is a stylistic mistake, that will not make a good impression (your writing will look too affected by English. Actually, this happened to me years ago, when I kept overusing ten/ta/to after a return from the UK. :-D And your speaking will look stilted. Not sure whether that's the best English word, it will look as if you were either overly dramatic, or as if you were not too bright and in desperate need of filler words.)

Another Czech resource in Italian is "Grammatica ceca" (Czech grammar), by the authors François Esvan, Anna Maria Perissutti and Andrea Trovesi.
As described in the title, this book is only about grammar, forget the dialogues.
And according to the description, this book covers the grammar from A1 to B2, so it could be the most complete resource in Italian language (I haven't bought the book yet).
As well as the other book "Corso di lingua ceca" (Czech language course, level A1-B1), the audio can be downloaded for free from the Hoepli website.
