The Czech Republic is celebrating the 700th anniversary of the birth of Charles IV, King of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor, whom Czechs perceive as the “father of the Czech nation” and the greatest Czech that ever lived. President Milos Zeman, government officials and representatives of European royal houses attended a celebratory mass at St. Vitus Cathedral at midday on Saturday. The royal guests attending the celebrations are the Grand Duke of Luxembourg Henry I, Monaco’s crown prince Albert II and Alois, Hereditary prince of Liechtenstein. The royal crown of Bohemia which Charles IV had made was exhibited during the mass.
