Google is running a doodle on its home page in the Czech Republic, honoring Czech writer Josef Kajetán Tyl’s 205th birthday. Tyl wrote the country’s national anthem, Kde domov můj.

In addition to writing the song, Tyl wrote several novels and short stories and about 20 plays. He was born on this day in 1808, and died in 1856.

Here’s Kde domov můj if you want to check it out:

This is one of at least three doodles Google is running today in different parts of the world. As previously reported, Google has one honoring the last day of the Canadian penny and one for Sri Lanka Independence Day.
