Kde domov muj

Just watched the gold medal ceremony for the Decathlon, and I have to admit, I got choked up when they raised the Czech flag and played Kde domov muj, which has to be one of the prettiest national anthems in the world. It’s one of those rare melodies that works both soft as a lullaby, and loud as a pub full of roughnecks.

It’s generally translated as “Where is my home,” but personally, I prefer “Where my home is,” which is more declarative.

According to the guy on Czech TV, you can send your congratulations to roman.sebrle@seznam.cz.
