Czechoslovak Independence Day

October 28th is the anniversary of the establishment of Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovak declared independence on 28th of October, 1918, against Austro-Hungarian Empire.

When it comes to celebrating Independence Day, having fireworks is mandatory. I found info regarding the celebration in Olomouc and went downtown with tripod.


I expected to see tons of national flags overwhelming the city but I was wrong... Rather I hardly see any national pride but the soldiers looked so cool.


The ceremony was solemn and took place at Žižkově náměstí.




Since this was my first time to be there, my positioning for shooting fireworks was so bad...

Have a wonderful week.
