A group of students training to be car mechanics in the town of Tisnov have created something unique in the motoring world - a car with two steering wheels. This bizarre model was welded together from two Skoda cars cut down the middle and each side has its own motor and gears. Interestingly, one end has covered 180 thousand kilometres, the other end - only 100 thousand. It took 10 students four months to make and they show it off at every opportunity. No need to say they never lack spectators.
Thousands of girls dressed up as witches last weekend for Walpurgis night. While their less fortunate dummy counterparts went up in smoke on hundreds of bonfires across the country, the real witches had a great night out - flaunting their wigs and warts, trying out black and white magic and flirting with the boys. On Prague's Kampa island a girls "witch band" performed for the crowd and people could buy all sorts of magic herbs and potions to try out.

Asked how a three year old could have all the right attributes, the head of the jury - a woman - said "simple, there's a witch hidden inside every one of us girls."

Dana and Ondrej are also unlikely to stick together for longer than necessary but that decision will have very little to do with Celtic tradition.
Policemen and convicts are not usually on the best of terms but on one day of the year in the town of Straz pod Ralskem they meet for a football friendly. Well, at least it is called a football friendly. In actual fact the convicts spend many months debating strategy so that they can give the officers a good beating on the field and they have their own team of supporters on the sidelines. The long awaited event took place last week and the police officers' team came out of it victorious. Well, they have more free time in which to practice. As for the convicts, they've gone back to planning the perfect strategy...
