Czech Republic marks Veterans Day

The Czech Republic marks International Veterans Day on Wednesday. Several events are being held across the country to mark the occasion, including an event at Prague’s Military Museum at Žižkov, a ceremony at the national memorial on Prague’s Vítkov Hill and the award of medals and awards to 53 war veterans, resistance fighters and soldiers by defence minister Martin Stropnický. Veterans Day marks the signing of the Armistice on November 11, 1918, which ended World War I.
