Bratislavská lýra[edit]

Bratislavská lýra (English: Bratislava Lyre) was an annual festival of popular songs in former Czechoslovakia, established in 1966 in Bratislava. Two competitions were held; the category of Czechoslovak songwriters and the international contest. Winners were awarded by a golden, silver and/or bronze Lyre (depending on a position). Special prizes included Audience Choice, Journalists Choice, and Lifetime Achievement award. Gombitová won seven awards in total - three golden lyres (1977–78), one of silver (1979) and bronze (1980), plus an Audience Choice award (1977).[2]

  1. ^ Liner notes of Modus Úsmev compilation denote "Deň ako z pohľadnice" to be written by Igor Bázlik and Zoro Laurinc, which is mistaken.Likely due to Gombitová's another song with a similar title — "Deň" from 1978 (released on VA Mladá pieseň).[3]
