Liberation festival 1-6 May

Every year at this time, starts the annual Liberation festival in Plzen.

It was sixty years ago on the 18th April 1945, that General George Patton's 3rd Army entered Czechoslovakia, liberating Western Bohemia from six years of Nazi-German occupation. American tanks appeared on the streets of Plzen from eight o'clock on the morning of Sunday 6 May, to be greeted with enthusiasm by the people.

Since 1990 the tradition has grown up. People from all over the world come to Plzen to meet brave American veterans and to celebrate with music, dancing and the known Pilsner beer.

So if you see people dressed in military clothes and tanks by the street, don’t get scared, instead join the celebration with dancing and drinking.

Have a nice Liberation Festival 2010!

Things you might not know about Charles University in Prague.

Maybe not all of you know but Charles University is one of the oldest universities in Europe.

Founded in 1347, it was also the first university in the Roman Empire and in central Europe.

The establishment of the university in Prague was inspired by Charles of Luxemburg. In 1347, Charles of Luxemburg and the Pope, who was an important ally, issued the establishement of the University.

During 1882-1945 the university was divided into German and Czech parts. In the German University one of the many notable academics was Albert Einstein, in Theoretical Physics.

The seal of Charles University shows its protector, Emperor Charles IV, whit his coat of arms as King of the Romans and King of Bohemia, kneeling in front of St. Wenceslas, the patron saint of Bohemia.
