Lukavský funeral

Hundreds of people turned up to pay their last respects to one of the legends of Czech theatre, Radovan Lukavský, on Tuesday. The 88-year old actor who starred in hundreds of theatre performances, including Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Goethe’s Faust, died on March 10, a month after being taken to hospital with heart problems. He remained active up until the very end, recently starring in Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard. Mr. Lukavský was known for his love of poetry and literature.
