  Honza Cervenka: When I was youngster back in 1980s, Alster's books "Chci hrát šachy" (I Want to Play Chess) and "Šachy hra královská" (Royal Game of Chess) were the most popular chess textbooks for beginners and intermediates available in Czech language. I think they are fairly good even today, although the theory of openings has changed a lot since then.
