We definitely have a lot to be proud of as a country. We won Nagano and… and what else did we actually achieve after the collapse of Czechoslovakia? How did we make it in the world? You don’t have to think about these questions anymore because we are here to answer them for you.
“I have been proud of the Czech Republic many times. For example, when the film Kolja won the Oscar, which was a huge success by Jan Svěrák and Zdeněk Svěrák,” says Jindřich Šídlo, “which is actually a film about Konstantin,” he adds ironically.
“Speaking of cinematography, I think that the highlight of the Czech contribution to world cinema was undoubtedly the role of Dana Morávková in the film Van Helsing. We can rightly be proud of that too,” Konstantin Sulimenko nods.
“And thus we must not forget Marek Vašut in the film Blade II,” reminds Ondřej Lasák.
But not only in cinematography can we find the new Czech Nagano.
“Taťána Kuchařová won Miss World in 2006. That was our great national success. And we even placed sixth at one Eurovision, that’s almost like a victory,” recalls Sulimenko.

Tereza Hyťhová’s double turn
Even in the second half, which we traditionally dedicate to social networks, we searched this time. But instead of reasons for national pride, this section featured the best of the best Czech political posts on social media over the past year. Because, in our opinion, they also form national identity and it is good to remember them.
“One of the best social media events is the Facebook petition of former SPD member Tereza Hyťhová. She first wrote in 2020: ‘I, Tereza Hyťhová, am terminating my membership in the SPD’ and described the SPD as a business project, after which she joined Trikolora. This year, however, she took back her words with another Facebook post. And I wonder if it is related to the fact that Trikolora signed a memorandum of cooperation with the SPD? Who knows,” shrugs Tereza Povolná.
“I would feel sorry for Tereza Hyťhová if she wasn’t Tereza Hyťhová,” says Jindřich Šídlo, “because I think she is either completely dull or the type of person for whom only Mirko Topolánek’s dictionary can be used. One example of why this is so: she wrote about people who racially insulted children from the Plynárenská Elementary School that she actually understood them.
However, Tereza Hyťhová only came in fourth place in the ranking of the best posts. Who took the medal positions? And who, on the other hand, completely failed? You will find out about that in today’s Šťastné podcast. You can play it in the player at the very beginning of the article.
The satirical program Šťastné Monday is published every Monday at eight in the morning on the Nauzal website.
That evening, you can also listen to the Šťastný podcast, in which we take you behind the scenes of the production of the popular show. In the podcast afterparty, we analyze what didn’t fit into the current episode and serve up a thorough analysis of the political weirdness on social networks.
Performers include Jindřich Šídlo, screenwriter Konstantin Sulimenko, producer Ondřej Lasák and docent of Instagram Tereza Povolná.
