Floods in the Czech Republic

The freezing weather has changed by thaw and billions of tons of thawing snow is now filling the rivers with many hectoliters of water.
As in many places in the Czech Republic, Prague is preparing for 10-year level water. Experienced by last flood, the anti-flood barriers are are now raised along the Vltava river.
This floods shouldn’t threaten the historical part of the town as well as Charles Bridge.
