Step Back in Time: Prague’s City Centre to Host Retro-Car Rally

The traditional the 1000 Miles of Czechoslovakia (1000 mil československých) race will be held in the heart of Prague on June 12.

A summer staple for collectors in the Czech Republic, the long-distance road rally revives the spirit of the endurance race of the same name which took place in former Czechoslovakia from 1933 to 1935 and took competitors twice from Prague to Bratislava and back.

Residents and visitors to the Czech capital will be able to view the rarities on Opletalova Street (in front of the Czech Automobile Club, Opletalova 29) on June 12 from 13:00 to 20:00.

The event is organised by the Czech Automobile Club, the Czech Automobile Club Veterans Association, and the city of Prague 1.

Around 150 automobiles of various brands (Škoda, Aero, BMW, Alfa Romeo, Mercedes Benz, etc.) will be on display, including iconic Praga cars and motorcycles. The nostalgic vibe will be enhanced with themed music and dance ensembles.

The next morning (13 June), rally participants will set off on a symbolic race through the Czech Republic to Bratislava.

The 1000 Miles of Czechoslovakia took place under the patronage of Czechoslovakia’s first president, Tomás Garrigue Masaryk, and has since become an annual event after a long hiatus.

It was inspired by the famous Italian Mille Miglia (1,000 miles) race.
