Exactly one month after the tragic event at the Prague Faculty of Arts, Charles University held an event to honour the memory of the victims at a memorial site outside the building. The return to the building will be gradual,  with many lectures due to take place in other facilities or online in the coming semester.

On December 21, a lone gunman who was a student of the faculty, went on a rampage, killing 14 people and injuring 25 before committing suicide.

Experts predict a reversal in the downward trend of apartment prices in the Czech Republic after a period of reductions, with expectations of a gradual increase throughout the year. Following years of substantial growth, selected apartments witnessed a decline in prices last year.
