The Czech Republic
History this song The Czech national anthem is formed by the first strophe of a song ‘Kde domov můj’ (English: ‘Where is my Home?’) from the historic theater play ‘Fidlovačka, aneb žádný hněv a žádná rvačka’ (English: ‘Fidlovačka, Or No Anger and No Brawl’) by Josef Kajetán Tyl, first staged in Music was composed by František Škroup. It soon became popular among people and gained status of a national song; since 1922 the first strophe has beenAV considered the Czech national anthem. Before the Czech- SlovakianAV splitting, it used to form the first part of the Czechoslovakian anthem. The national anthem is possible to play and sing upon occasions of national holidays as well as other events when it is usual to do so (e.g. upon openings of international sports matches; upon internationally or ceremonially important culture events and similar).
The Czech National Anthem Translated by J. V. Sládek Where is my home, where is my home? Over leas are waters streaming, On the hills blue forests dreaming, Flowery worlds Spring’s happy skies, Like as earthly Paradise: There’s the land so full of beauty, Czechia, my fatherland, Czechia, my fatherland! Kde domov můj, kde domov můj? Voda hučí po lučinách, bory šumí po skalinách, v sadě skví se jara květ, zemský ráj to na pohled! A to je ta krásná země, země česká, domov můj, země česká, domov můj! česká hymna - Czech anthem - video
