Radio Free Europe in Prague will be moved

Radio Free Europe will have new building. Radio Free Europe broadcasts into Near East from building of Federal Assembly in a centre of Prague few meters from National museum and Wenceslas square.

It brings many problems, because an attack at World business centre in New York brought heavy safety measures as a prevention of terrorist attacks. It brings restrictions for a surrounding of Federal Assembly, for example closed road from Wenceslas square to Vinohrady quarter. Armoured vehicles and soldiers guarding the building can’t effectively protect the radio in centre of settled area, so a plan of dislocation was started months ago.

New building and a residence of Free Europe will be in quarter Hagibor, Prague 10. Minister of foreign affairs Cyril Svoboda gave a 1,17 million dollars check to representatives of Radio Free Europe in Washington. Broadcasting from new building could start in two years. The cost of new building and a removal will cost approximately 325 millions Czech crowns.
