    Hussites rocked They are one of my favorite parts of Czech history. (Well, one of the few parts that isn't boring. ><; ) If they didn't dig out the bones of kings and scatter them on the ground, I'd find them thoroughly congenial.

    Sky that was green,
    And brown clouds passed
    Like chestnut leaves along the ground.

    Yeah shame they were heretics, otherwise I'd be more sympathetic to them.

    Yeah, that might be a drawback for a lot of people.

    Hussites are actually considered to stand at the root of the fact that most of Czech population is atheistic. Later came other reasons which reinforced this, but Hussites were at the beginning.


    ...


    If you want other words similar in Czech and English, from the top of my mind it's for example wine = víno, alcohol = alkohol, cigarettes = cigarety, coffee = kafe (this area is quite extensive ), reality = realita, fantasy = fantazie, mum = máma... etcetera.

    In Czech and Slovak, the accent is on the first syllable and the second "a" is actually long

    I said it like baNAHN. Don't know what you mean by accent though. So it's BAnahn?
