Special exhibitions, concerts, shows and parades take place during a full year of events, culminating on October 28th with a grand military parade and the re-opening of the National Museum.
Also celebrating in 2018 is Corinthia Hotel Prague, which is 20 years old as a Corinthia-branded hotel. Perched atop one of Prague’s several hills, the five-star hotel boasts panoramic views of Prague, known as a City of a Hundred Spires.
