Primary school may be named after Václav Havel

A primary school in the town of Žďárec, that former Czechoslovak and Czech President Václav Havel had attended in childhood, may be renamed after the former dissident who passed away at the end of last year. The town council will discuss the change soon, and the mayor believes all the paperwork might be completed by the end of the school year. The Vysočina region so far has no public institutions or places that are named after Václav Havel.
