Prague lights up for 2018 centenary celebrations

With Prague celebrating the 100th birthday of the founding of the Czech Republic and 50 years since the Prague Spring, the Czech Republic’s capital city will be at the heart of all the major celebratory events to mark the two anniversaries.

Special exhibitions, concerts, shows and parades take place during a full year of events, culminating on October 28 with a grand military parade and the re-opening of the National Museum.

Also celebrating this year is Corinthia Hotel Prague, which is 20 years old as a Corinthia-branded hotel. To tie in with the double birthdays, the five-star hotel will present a bottle of local wine to each guest staying between June 11-17.

It has also extended its Best of Prague package to include tickets for the major exhibition of the work of world-acclaimed Czech Art Nouveau artist Alfons Mucha. As part of the centenary celebrations, the exhibition runs from June until the end of October at the Municipal House in Old Town. Guests staying at the hotel on the Best of Prague package can choose a complimentary ticket to an attraction in the city for each day of their stay including the Old Town Hall Tower, Alfons Mucha, Žižkov Tower and the Franz Kafka Museum.

The Best of Prague package costs from 115 euros and includes a stay in a superior room, breakfast, Wi-Fi, VAT and taxes, early check-in and late check-out (subject to availability), and one sightseeing ticket per person, per each night booked.
