Week-long celebration for Praguers, which will finish on July 1, the official date of the beginning of the presidency will take place in a public space to show Prague as a cultural city, where history comes to life with the stories told by each of us.
The whole celebrations are spread over time so that everyone can find what interests them almost at any time. The celebrations will begin at the Rudolfinum, which will be the center of events for the first weekend. You can look forward to discussions with experts on the topic of Czech membership in the EU, small concerts by musicians from different Member States and a program for children and families. The celebrations will also include parades of large puppets and dancers carrying the flags of the EU Member states. The first weekend, Kampa will host a parade of glowing puppets, The Visitors, which symbolize the underwater inhabitants and thus have a clear reference to ecological and responsible behavior in the EU. On June 30 and July 1, allegorical parades that represented the Czech Republic at the EXPO world exhibition in Dubai will march through the Prague city centre.
