Prague’s Petřín Tower Lights Up to Honor Czechoslovak Independence Day

On the evening of Saturday, October 28, Prague’s iconic Petřín Tower, will be lit in the Czech national colors to celebrate Czechoslovak Independence Day.

A similar event is scheduled for November 17, in commemoration of the Day of Struggle for Freedom and Democracy in the country.

It’s worth noting that Petřín Tower stands out as one of the few landmarks in Prague where decorative lights remain on throughout the night.

Events are being held around the country to mark Czechoslovak Independence Day commemorating the founding of Czechoslovakia on October 28, 1918, and honoring the country’s co-founder and first president Tomas Guarrigue Masaryk.

The highlight of the celebrations is a ceremony at Prague Castle on Saturday evening, at which President Pavel will hand out high state distinctions to 60 people for outstanding services to the country.
