Kde domov muj

Kde domov můj? (Where is My Home?) is the national anthem of the Czech Republic. It has been used since independence in 1993. In the old Czechoslovakia, this song formed the first part of the national anthem, with the Slovak anthem forming the second part.

It was written by the composer Frantisek Skroup and the dramatist Josef Kajetan Tyl as a part of the comedy Fidlovacka aneb zádný hnev a zádná rvacka. It was performed for the first time in the Stavovské Divadlo theatre in Prague on December 21, 1831.

Original Czech Lyrics

Kde domov můj,
kde domov můj?
Voda hučí po lučinách,
bory šumí po skalinách,
v sadě skví se jara květ,
zemský ráj to na pohled!
A to je ta krásná země,
země česká, domov můj,
země česká, domov můj!

Swedish translation

Var är mitt hem?
Var är mitt hem?
Vatten brusar över ängarna,
skogar susar över klipporna,
i fruktträdgĺrden lyser vĺrens blommor,
ett jordisk paradis för ögat!
Och detta är det vackra landet,
tjeckiska landet, mitt hem,
tjeckiska landet, mitt hem!

English translation

Where is my home?
Where is my home?
Water showers over the hills,
Forests swish over the cliffs,
In the garden the spring flowers shine,
an Earthly paradise for the eye!
And this is the beautiful country,
Czech country, my home,
Czech country, my home!
