Prague Velvet Revolution monument moved short distance

A memorial to the 1989 Velvet Revolution on Prague’s Národní St. has been moved, the news site reported. The memorial, which takes the form of outstretched hands above the date 17.11.1989, is no longer in a passageway through the Kaňka Palace but on the building’s façade. Building owners the Chamber of Advocates said there was a fear that the many candles lit at the original location could cause a fire.
