Slavimo Slavno Slaveni! (or Slavimo Slavno Sloveni!) (Slavs, let's celebrate gloriously!), R 196, S 503, LW A223, is a piece by Franz Liszt based on a work by the Dubrovnik poet Medo Pucić, composed for the Millennium celebration of the arrival of Slavic apostles Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius to the area of present-day Slovakia. The celebrations took place in Rome in July 1863, organized by Pope Pius IX; Liszt was personally present. Liszt made arrangements of the choral piece for solo piano and for organ.
