New uniforms for Prague Castle guards

Prague Castle guards are photographed by tourists every day. Soon the guards will probably change their uniforms. Present blue uniforms are according to some Czech veterans too much alike to uniforms of US Marines.

The new uniforms should copy the models from the 30’s of the last century. The uniforms of that time were green with red collar facings and golden waistband. Shoes and weapons should remain the same.

The pressure to change the uniforms has already last for 16 years. Veterans say that present uniforms designed by Theodor Pistek are not acceptable and look more like circus costumes. New uniforms should more represent the tradition of Czech country. There are still lots of present uniforms in store so the change will not happen presently.
