The longest relay of the world in Prague

A torch relay World Harmony Run promoting and strengthening global friendship and understanding reached on its more than fifty thousand kilometres long journey the Czech Republic. The runners were guests of the Mayor of Prague 1 Mr Vihan in the Old Town City Hall.

The torch’s flames symbolise harmony among more than 80 participating nations. Not only is the torch carried by the runners but it also passes through the hands of people who meet them. Everyone can take part by carrying the torch only few metres, by holding it or by cheering and supporting the runners. In this way the passing of the torch symbolically overcomes barriers such as cultural or political ones.

The relay will be passing through the Czech Republic exactly one week till 21st July when it will continue its almost thirty thousand kilometres long European part ending in London on 10th October. You can read more about this noble project here.
