Czech President Miloš Zeman and his Slovak counterpart Andrej Kiška will travel together today in a historic presidential train as part of ongoing events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
The heads of state will stop in Hodonín in the Czech Republic where they will place a wreath in honour of the first Czechoslovak president, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk.
Later in the day, Zeman and Kiška will go to Topoľčianky in neighbouring Slovakia, the site of Masaryk’s favourite summer retreat.
