A "serious" non-bohemian recording of the 7th is by Giulini (mid-1970s, usually on a EMI twofer with early 60s recordings of 8+9). If findable at twofer price, that's great bargain. Giulini re-recorded 8+9 for DG in Chicago but I find them too slow and "massive", he again recorded some Dvorak later and still slower (Sony) but I haven't heard them.

I am hardly an expert but there are some specific things about the "Czech" sound, e.g. woodwind playing traditions and probably also some rhythmic articulations. However, to me, Dvorak's 7th seems to me one of his least "Czech" pieces, compared e.g. to 8 or 9, not to begin with slavonic dances or rhapsodies.
