A month after the Czech Republic started easing lockdown limitations, a large number of people assembled on Prague's iconic Charles Bridge, for a symbolic “farewell party" to celebrate their renewed freedom in an incredible way. The Czech Republic was among the first countries to enter into a lockdown when cases of coronavirus were reported.
The dinner party was organized by a café owner, to mark what he believes is the end of COVID-19 disruption in the city. While the celebratory dinner was free to attend, a limit of 2,000 guests was asked to register via the online ticketing platform. This was to help the organizers manage the crowd size.
Registered guests were provided with stickers and invited to sit at the lengthy 500-meter-long table across the medieval Charles Bridge, which was still accessible to other pedestrians. Diners brought food and beverages from home and shared with each other on the table and interacted happily. Musicians and entertainers set up a show for the people who were attending the celebratory occasion.
Despite lingering genuine concerns over the coronavirus crisis, most were more than happy to do so. Past the finishing time in the evening, leftovers were still available down the table to be consumed by passers-by.
The Czech Republic has so far been able to fight COVID-19 pandemic fairly well and is amongst the least affected countries in Europe. The Czech Republic is already open to visitors from European countries, segregating the countries among Green, Orange and Red zones. Travellers from green zones need not go for quarantine or show any Covid-19 negative results. The incoming tourists from the orange and red zones should either be carrying recently acquired COVID-19 negative result or undergo the test while entering the country.
Czech cities have been hosting increasing number of visitors from India, and the numbers are increasing with every passing year. While Prague and its attractions remain popular among travellers, an increased interest has been recorded in newer experiences such as Heritage Cities of Olomouc, Litomysl, Kutna Hora, and Kromeriz, which have old-world atmosphere and abundant in sites protected by UNESCO. Explore joyful cities of Karlovy Vary and Liberec that offer experiences that are ideal for families and couples. The Happening Cities that are dynamically developing and are young are Brno and Ostrava, and of course Prague, are the cities that never sleep.
Choose your motivation, and choose your city, in the Czech Republic!
