Loretta square near Prague Castle became a set for this performance, three wise men are played by three boys. Their servants were distributing chocolate coins to crowd of audience.

This Procession has major reason in charity. Gifts for Infant Jesus from three kings are followed by gifts from people. These are later distributed among children who spent Christmas in a hospital.
