Military parade

Am 28. Oktober, dem tschechischen Nationalfeiertag, fand in Prag anläßlich des 90. Jahrestages der Gründung der Tschechoslowakei im Jahr 1918 eine Militärparade in der Evropska Strasse im Stadtteil Dejvice statt. Tschechische Soldaten auf einem Panzer mit der Prager Burg im Hintergrund.

Prague witnessed its first major military parade since 1985 on Tuesday the 28th of October 2008, to mark the 90th anniversary of the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918. Czechoslovakia weathered many storms before finally splitting into two countries in 1993, but the anniversary is still celebrated here in the Czech Republic, although not in Slovakia. The idea to hold a large-scale military parade attracted criticism in some quarters, but seems to have been positively received by the public.
