Lyrics:

Czech/Slovak:

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!

Nad Tatrou sa blýska, hromy divo bijú.
Nad Tatrou sa blýska, hromy divo bijú.
Zastavme sa, bratia,
ved sa ony stratia,
Slováci ozijú.
Zastavme sa, bratia,
ved sa ony stratia,
Slováci ozijú.

English:

Where is my home, where is my home?
Water roaring across meadows,
Pines whisper across crags,
In the garden shine the blossoms,
Paradise on earth it is to see!
And that’s the beautiful land,
Czech land, my home.
Czech land, my home.

Lightning flashes over the Tatra, the thunder pounds wildly,
Lightning flashes over the Tatra, the thunder pounds wildly.
Let us pause, brothers,
they will surely disappear,
the Slovaks will revive.
Let us pause, brothers,
they will surely disappear,
the Slovaks will revive.
