Do you know, why you didn't have to go to school today?
We are celebrating the 101st anniversary of establishment they so called 1st Czechoslovakian Republic (although Slovaks joined technically two days later)!
Celebration of state that does not exist anymore might seem strange to you. But for Czechs and Slovaks it was a special day - being first independent state after belonging to the Habsburg monarchy for almost 300 years! And although it was build on controversial idea of "fake" Czechoslovakian nation and therefore it was propably never going to last forever, it was a huge historical step for both of our nations and we are still proud of it!
