Czech intelligency warn against terrorism

According to the Czech Intelligence Agency BIS terrorists planned terrorist attacks in the Czech Republic already last year.

They acknowledge that in August 2005 a group of three Egyptian men tried to get into the cockpit of the CSA plane flying for Norwegian Oslo to Prague. When the cabin crew prevent the men from entering the cockpit and took them back to their seats, the Egyptians had an inadequate explanation for their behaviour. The Egyptian were detained at Prague airport Ruzyne and sent back to Egypt. The agency think that it might have been a test of security measures in CSA air planes.

But that is not all. Algerian man was expelled from the Czech Republic for planning terrorist attacks in Prague. He cannot return to Czech Republic any more. Prague was also facing terrorist threads at the end of September.

Intelligent agency warn that Prague is on the list of cities that might be attacked. Critical places are among others metro, railway, department stores or stadiums and according to BIS also Radio Free Europe which broadcast in Persian language into Iran.

Exhibition of Czech contemporary paintings

For those who are interested in contemporary paintings, we would like to introduce an exhibition displaying a part of Richard Adam’s private collection which is in its complexity the largest collection of Czech paintings from the 80’s till today. The exhibition called Akne focuses on the works from the last ten years.

The title Akne (Acne) after a painting by Jiri Cernicky may characterize the whole exhibition for its connection with youth and puberty. Some paintings are surprising, provoking, representing innovative motives and made by various techniques and approaches. The exhibition displays lots of paintings made by young generation.

The exhibition held in Rudolfinum Art Gallery is a good example of cooperation of a public institution with a private collector. You can visit the exhibition until 30th December.
