Come to Prague to see Tour de Ski competition

2006 competition hradcanske namesti praha Like the last year, there are going to be ski competitions in Prague. The square closest to Prague castle, Hradcanske namesti, will be hidden under snow cover. According to the organizers, the only thing that needs to be solved is how to transport 2 000 cubic meters of artificial snow, which represents approximately 500 trucks.

Why in the very Prague center? Katerina Neumann, the chairwoman of the organizing committee says: “There is not a nicer place in Prague. The TV pictures going to the world will be fabulous.”

The idea is, on 30th of December 2007 Hradcanske namesti will be covered in snow to became the setting for the Tour de Ski competition. Sport in streets became a hit of the world’s metropolises. And a way, how to present the city as a modern and lively place, that can entertain not just its citizens, but visitors form all around the world.

City councillor for culture and heritage, Milan Richter, comments: “I am glad for such events in Prague. I’m not such a sport fan to go to watch skiing competitions somewhere in mountains, but if it will be in the center, I’ll be glad to come.”

Milan Richter is not the sole person who enjoys it. Those races are common i.e. in Oslo, Paris or Stockholm. And as in those cities, in Prague there won’t be just sports, we can look forward to other entertainment, like concerts, performances and programme for children.
