Fireworks display for centenary of the Republic

Thousands of people gathered to watch a fireworks display in Prague marking
the centenary of the birth of Czechoslovakia. The show started at 19 hours
18 minutes –symbolizing the year of the birth of Czechoslovakia 100 years
ago. It was titled “Our Common Century” and was dominated by
Czechoslovakia’s national colours – blue, red and white. The 10-minute
show reflected milestone moments in the country’s history, national
symbols, the natural beauties of Czechoslovakia and the sports successes
achieved over the years and was accompanied by selections from Bedřich
Smetana’s opera Libuše and his cycle of symphonic poems My Country.
