This week yet another 1989 anniversary was remembered: the Catholic church commemorated the 12th anniversary of the canonization of St. Agnes of Bohemia on November 12, 1989. More from Alena Skodova:
Agnes's canonization had come just several days before the Velvet Revolution started in Czechoslovakia and as we hear from Larry Cada, many people are convinced that an old prophecy had come true:
Beijing ends agreement with Prague – but can spat harm Czech capital?
Czechia now ahead of Spain in GDP per capita, but still below EU average
Czechs observe day of mourning for pop idol Karel Gott
Thousands pay tribute to deceased national pop icon Karel Gott
In memoriam: Karel Gott, the ‘Bohemian nightingale’
