The Czech Republic and Slovakia celebrate 100 years since the founding of independent Czechoslovakia
Today, on October 28, the Czech Republic and Slovakia celebrate 100 years since the founding of independent Czechoslovak state.
Or listen to this magnificent rendition of Bedřich Smetana's "Má vlast" ('My Homeland') from 1990 by Rafael Kubelík. (with the Presidential Fanfares and the Czech and Slovak national anthems at the beginning) (on YouTube).
Happy Independent Czechoslovak State Day!
Preji vam vseho nejlepsiho k tomuto svatku, a at' se nekdy zase spojite jako cela vlast!
Thank you for your kind wishes, but we will probably never be one country again. I don't even think, someone want it to. We have two languages, we have two republics and it is all right this way. :)
Slováci u nás studují a pracují, my k nim jezdíme na dovolené a nemám pocit, že by někdo veřejně řešil opětovné spojení.
Quite a great historical event. One of Google's Doodles today honors this anniversary. https://www.google.com/doodles/100th-anniversary-of-czechoslovakia
I recommend the yesterday's Smetana's opera Libuše. https://www.ceskatelevize.cz/ivysilani/12398626946-bedrich-smetana-libuse
Possibly geolocked to Czechia.
I saw a lot of different activities for the anniversary and attended some events. On a related note does anyone know of a book in English about Masaryk? I am interested in learning more about him and this time. I'd like a little more than just articles but all the books I have seen have been in Czech that is beyond my ability.
