Prague could see own Havel memorial

Prague Mayor Tomáš Hudeček has made clear Prague could see a memorial to late president Vaclav Havel introduced during the first half of the year. A similar memorial, designed by architect and friend to the late Mr Havel, Bořek Šípek, was unveiled at the weekend in Barcelona. Other memorial sites have also been unveiled in Washington and Dublin. The head of Prague’s Václav Havel Library, Marta Smolíková, said suitable locations needed to be centrally-located but also to provide an opportunity for discussion and meeting. According to the director, Prague’s Kampa was a possible location for such a site.
