Czechoslovak Independence Day in 2016

This is getting to be my annual ritual ceremony of taking photos of military procession and fireworks on 28th October in Olomouc...

It is a public holiday in Czech Republic. Rather, it's an Independence day. On October 28th in 1918 Czechoslovakia declared its independence against Austro-Hungarian Empire.

As always, military procession started at 17:40, leaving from Horní náměstí and headed for Žižkově náměstí where the ceremony took place. 

Similar to last year, a young blonde boy soldier took the lead this year...

Happy Independence Day!

  1. 日没直前(後?)の薄暗さの中でくっきり撮られ、素晴らしい迫力。まるで映画の一場面のようです。チェコ国かスロバキア国にお住まいなのですか? (私の頭の中ではチェコスロバキアのままで、あやうくチェコスロバキアに・・と書くところでした。)見物人もコートを着られて寒そうですね。関西ではようやく秋が深まってきました。
