Lol I do like the Czech anthem in its natural state:

It is a rather somber anthem. It was written while the Czechs were part of the Hapsburg empire (Kde Domov Muj means where is my home?) and has continued to hold relevance as the Czechs were continually harassed and conquered by neighbors throughout the 20th century. I used to be able to sing it pretty well but sadly my Czech isn't great anymore


it's p. great

also lol

it's funny just how intelligible this would be to someone to knows russian (probably true of any slavic language though tbh)

a literal translation of the same sentence would be rendered as ""де дом мой?/Gde dom moj?", which looks and sounds almost exactly the same (or well it would look almost the same if not for cyrillic)

I despise East Germany but those Commies sure have a way with anthems.


this is a great one

fun fact: they lyrics and melody of this and deutschlandlied are 100% fully interchangeable with one another lol

Yea it's very good and powerful.

Even the Irish sing it when they'd play the French in sports  (just the the tune not the words but still).

it's also just good outright

at least, when it isn't being ruined by some poptard who forgets the lyrics or otherwise hideously bastardizes it

you know, i don't necessarily mind unique covers of the anthem

his improv was just extremely excessive

that performance would have been way better if not for that
