Prince Charles to return to Czech Republic for four-day visit
Britain’s Prince Charles will be arriving in the Czech Republic at the weekend, as he and his wife Camilla continue a trip through Central Europe. In addition to visiting sights of his choosing around the country, Charles will likely be checking in on the legacy he has left in the country from several previous trips.
The heir to the British throne has taken an active interest in the architecture and ecology of the Czech Republic over the years, and this trip is no exception. Prince Charles will be taking time from his four-day stay to visit the Moravian village of Hostětín which has earned a reputation for environmental friendliness through numerous sustainability projects and use of eco-technologies. The same day he is to hold a discussion on climate change with students of Brno’s Masaryk University, and will receive the institution’s highest award for his devotion to issues of environmentalism and culture.
The royal finances are now to thank for the restoration of Prague Castle’s Church of St. Bartholomew, the renewal of several gardens beneath the castle walls. Prince Charles will likely be checking in on some of these works, an easy walk from his accommodation in Prague’s Lichtenstein Palace, as he meets with President Havel before leaving the Czech Republic on Tuesday.
