Greeting - the iconic "Nazdar!" is a purely Czech greeting, which began to be used during the fundraising for the construction of the National Theatre ("Na zdar Národnímu divadlu" - meaning "to the succes of the National Theatre"), it quite quickly turned into a common phrase and later became a single word and also one of the most used greetings.
