My favourite czech music 01 – The anthem of Czech Republic

I thought of adding a new view of our country here and that´s through our music.

I find it the best to start by our anthem.

You will find czech lyrics and a fine english translation inside this youtube video I found. The song is generally telling us how beautiful land is Czech Republic and that it is our home. It is originally a song from a comedy play called Fidlovačka, or No Anger and No Brawl. It was written and played at times of a national fight for our own identity against Habsburg Empire we were part of.

You may read more interesting facts about this song in this Wikipedia page.

I hope you will enjoy listening to this song and that you will join me in these little posts about our music.

See you next time.
