State honours to be presented in person on October 28

State honours will be presented in person on the traditional October 28 Independence Day holiday, a representative of President Miloš Zeman said on Wednesday. The 2020 ceremony did not take place due to the Covid situation so last year’s laureates will also be presented with medals and orders this year.

The precise form of the ceremony at Prague Castle will be agreed with the Ministry of Health.
