I think it was not only the Soviet Union that invaded Czechoslovakia but also other Warsaw Pact countries

Interestingly there was a third defenestration in Czechia (then Czechoslovakia), of Jan Masaryk in 1948. The moral of the story is not to go near windows in the Czech Republic I suppose.

It's certainly not often I get to type "defenestration." I enjoy it. The typing, not the act.

It's a cool word. Like demonstration except with fenêtre, the french word for window, thrown in the middle. Very literal.

That was TOUGH!!!!! It would have been less tough if I could spell Czechia, but it's still referred to by it's older and longer name here.

:-/ I typed in "Pilsner" for the beer answer. Is Plzen where that comes from? I feel like I got ripped off. I almost always miss the alcoholic questions.

Plzen is the modern name of the city. Pilsen is the German name of the city and it's from that name that the word Pilsner comes from.

I feel the same. I was proud of myself for knowing pilsner and then it wasn't correct. :(

It's also the country Budweiser stole its name from (the original Czech Budweiser is much better).

Why can't you accept defenestrate? Typed it in and it didn't go. Figured it wasn't the answer. Imagine my face when I found out the answer was, believe it or not, defenestrate. Except with an -ion

Charles Bridge (puke) spent a minute trying to figure out what it's called in English. Why isn't the native name included? Karluv most, or a name it's commonly known under in Europe: Karlsbrücke.

I only knew it as Karlsbrücke as well, but I'm not sure it is commonly known that way outside of German-speaking regions. Could you elaborate on that? Karlův most is added now.

It definitely isn't known by that name in non-German speaking regions of Europe.
