Czech pupetteering added to UNESCO intangible cultural heritage list

Czech and Slovak puppeteering have been added to the UNESCO world intangible cultural heritage list. The move was made at a UNESCO meeting currently taking place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Czech Republic was already represented on the list by the slovácký verbuňk dance, Hlinecko region masopust (carnival) processions and masks and the south Bohemian ride of the kings tradition.
