One of the highlights of the centenary celebrations in Prague was the biggest military parade in the country’s modern history. The parade on Evropská street showcased the best that the country’s security forces have to offer. Over 2,000 people including professional soldiers from the country’s elite units, police officers, firemen and emergency crews took part, displaying the latest military technology. A planned flyby of Gripen army planes and helicopters went ahead, despite heavy rain.
The parade was viewed, from a special tribune, by Czech and Slovak top officials, visiting foreign guests and members of the diplomatic corps. Among the foreign guests present was US Secretary of Defence James Mattis.
