Going Native

On Friday, the 17th of November, Czechia celebrates the Day of Freedom and Democracy and International Student Day.

This day commemorates two important events in modern history. In 1939 there was a riot by university students which was suppressed by the Nazi security forces. To mark the 50th anniversary of this student revolt, a commemorative gathering of students was planned in 1989, but it turned into an anti-regime demonstration and the overthrow of the communist regime in former Czechoslovakia.

For you, it means not only that there are no classes on that day, but you can also celebrate it. The annual celebrations are always packed with a multitude of events, ranging from cultural festivities to political protests.
