The Liberation Day in the Czech Republic

Yesterday the Czech Republic celebrated the 62nd anniversary of the liberation of the country from the Nazis. 8th May is a national holiday in the Czech Republic.

The president of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus together with the Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek and other politicians honoured the memory of victims of the WWII by one minute silence and laying wreaths at the National Memorial on Vitkov hill in Prague.

The wreath-laying ceremonies took place in many parts of the Czech Republic, e.g. in Hradec Kralove, Karlovy Vary or Ceska Lipa. Several towns organized reconstructions of important battles of the WWII.
