"Awesome, fascinating, incredible" such were the reactions of spectators to the opening Letní Letná show in Prague. Performed by Pompe Hedengren's AQUANAUTS the show included three key elements - water, air and fire. The audience watched 32 acrobats suspended high above the water reservoir in Letenské sady, performing breathtaking creations as well as magic in the water performed by aqua belles from SK Neptun.

Between now and September 3, visitors will be able to see 115 performances by artists from 15 countries, among them a performance by the Czech Losers Cirque Company.
