Czech Tongue Twisters

Ever heard of the famous voweless Czech tongue twister
Strč prst skrz krk ? (listen to it in MP3 format here)
It literally translates as "Stick your finger through your throat".

Or czech out the beauty of the "ř" sound in the tongue twister
Třistatřiatřicet stříbrných křepelek přeletělo přes třistatřiatřicet stříbrných střech. (listen to it in MP3 format here)
"Three hundred and thirty three silver quails flew over three hundred and thirty three silver roofs".

Read an English speaker's view and commentary on these peculiar sounds of Czech language here.

All about the Czech language in an encyclopedic manner is available on Wikipedia at
