A fireworks display in Prague took place 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.
Each of the sections was accompanied by different music, such as excerpts from Bedřich Smetana’s opera Libuše of his cycle of symphonic poems My Country.
