What language are the nuns speaking in this ad for OS/2 Warp?

This is the ad. I'm pretty sure it's an eastern european or slavic language, and for some reason my first instinct was Polish, but I have no reason for thinking this. I do not speak any slavic languages.

I want to know the answer to this question because because I want to write fan fiction about the nuns. Any additional information about what life would be like for a nun in whatever country they're supposed to be in would be very welcome.

This version on youtube says it's Czech (see the comments and description).

As to what life would be like, it's tough to say. Their habits look sort of vaguely nun-like but don't square up with any of the ones I'm immediately familiar with. The day-to-day of religious orders varies greatly with their particular charism/focus. They might be contemplatives who spend most of their day at prayer, or working in schools, hospitals, universities, and so on.
