The centenary of Czechoslovakia’s foundation will culminate with a number of public events, exhibitions, concerts, a military parade and a firework in Prague at the weekend of October 27-28, organisers told journalists today.
Fireworks on Letna will begin symbolically at 19:18. Prague bridges – most Legií, Čechův most, Mánesův most, Charles Bridge or embankments – Smetanovo nábřeží, Dvořákovo nábřeží are the best for watching, as well as Petřín hill and Letná itself. Outside the center a popular place is the hillside in Rieger’s Orchards or the hill in Vítkov.
