The Party of Free Citizens or Free Citizens Party[1] (Strana svobodných občanů, Svobodní) is a eurosceptic political party in the Czech Republic. It was founded in 2009 by Petr Mach, an external economic advisor of Czech president Václav Klaus.

It ran in the 2009 EP election in the Czech Republic; among its goals are the failure of the Treaty of Lisbon and forcing a referendum on introduction of the euro in the Czech Republic. It was in talks with Declan Ganley to be part of his EU-wide Libertas movement, but the talks failed.[2] Its logo is a ram on a green field.[3][4]
