Czechoslovakia

, Czechoslovakia, Slovakia materials thumb Reconstructed trophy (architectural) trophy (File:Bratislava Detail zo vstupného portálu.jpg) that has been restored as part of the renovation efforts Finally it was decided to restore the castle. Archaeological and architectural research started in 1953 and long restoration works began in 1957. The restoration was done to the last (Baroque) state of the main building, but at many places older (Gothic, Renaissance) preserved elements or parts have been restored. The Theresianum has not been restored and the Hillebrandt building of 1762 was restored only around the year 2000. The Slovak painter Janko Alexy gained recognition for the restoration of the castle. The finishing of the restoration in 1968 was interrupted in August 1968, when the castle was occupied by Warsaw Pact troops (see Prague Spring). On 28 October 1968, however, the Federation Law, turning the centralist state of Czechoslovakia into a federation of a Czech Socialist Republic (later called Czech Republic) and a Slovak Socialist Republic (later called Slovak Republic), was signed in the Federation Hall of the castle. On 3 September 1992, the new constitution of independent Slovakia (Constitution of Slovakia) was signed in the Knights Hall of the castle. The interest in Zelenka's music has begun to grow, especially since the end of the 1950s. By the late 1960s and early 1970s all Zelenka's instrumental compositions and selected liturgical music were published in Czechoslovakia. The most important revival was demonstrated by the first presentation of selected compositions by Czech conductor Milan Munclinger and his ensemble Ars Rediviva. They were three trio sonatas in 1958 - 1960, Sinfonia concertante in 1963 and the exquisite interpretation of "Lamentationes Jeremiae prophetae" with soloists Karl Berman, Nedda Casei and Theo Altmeyer in 1969. The music of Zelenka has become widely known and available since that time, through recordings (Gramophone record) and sparked the interest of musicians such as, Milan Munclinger (above), Heinz Holliger and Reinhard Goebel. The '''Order of the White Lion''' is the highest order (order (decoration)) of the Czech Republic. It continues a Czechoslovak (Czechoslovakia) order of the same name created in 1922 as an award for foreigners. (Czechoslovakia had no civilian decoration for its citizens in 1920s and 1930s). It was inspired by the Czech Nobility Cross created in 1814 by the Emperor and King Francis I and awarded to 37 Bohemian noblemen. From 1916 to 1918 Váchal served as a soldier on the Italian front. During 1940, expressing resistance against Nazi (Nazism) occupation of Czechoslovakia, he moved from Prague to the village of Studeňany ('tusculum' or 'exile'). After the communist revolution of 1948 in Czechoslovakia, he became more socially and culturally isolated and his works were rarely seen in public. He lived in obscurity on the family estate of his partner, Anna Macková, in Studeňany. Even with the coming of Prague Spring in the late 1960s his situation didn’t significantly change. He was, however, awarded the state title of Meritorious Artist (Zasloužilý umělec) shortly before his death in 1969. He is buried in the village of Radim near Jičín, eastern Bohemia. 200px upright thumb ''Portmoneum'' - Váchal's museum in Litomyšl (File:Litomyšl - Portmoneum 1.JPG) From 1916 to 1918 Váchal served as a soldier on the Italian front.

The Czech part (western) of the country became the so-called Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia under so-called State-President Emil Hácha, the newly separated Slovak Republic (Slovak Republic (1939–1945)), a Nazi-dependent puppet regime, led by Roman Catholic priest Jozef Tiso was ultimately inserted in Slovakia.
