Anthem Lyrics

Kde domov muj, Kde domov muj?


voda huci po lucinach,


bory sumi po skalinach,


v sade skvi se jara kvet,


zemsky raj to na pohled!


A to je ta krasna zeme,


zeme ceska domov muj,


zeme ceska domov muj!



Kde domov muj, kde domov muj?


V kraji znás-li bohumilém


Duse utlé v tele cilém,


Mysl jasnou, vznik a zdar,


A tu sílu vzdoru zmar!


To je Cechu slavné pléme,


Mezi Cechy domov muj,


Mezi Cechy domov muj.

Anthem Lyrics English

Where is my home, where is my home?


Water bubbles across the meadows,


Pinewoods rustle among crags,


The garden is glorious with spring blossom,


Paradise on earth it is to see.


And this is that beautiful land,


The Czech land, my home,


The Czech land, my home.

Where is my home, where is my home?


If, in a heavenly land, you have met


Tender souls in agile frames,


Of clear mind, vigorous and prospering,


And with a strength that frustrates all defiance,


That is the glorious race of Czechs,


Among Czechs (is) my home,


Among Czech, my home.
