19-12-2011

Hundreds of people have been paying their last respects to Mr Havel, bowing in silence before his closed coffin at the former church of St. Anna in Prague. The site opened at noon on Monday. Mr Havel’s widow, Dagmar Havlová, placed a bouquet of roses with a black ribbon on her husband's casket. Others, too, have been bringing flowers. Ornamental details in the hall were put together by Mr Havel’s friend and former collaborator at Prague Castle, architect Bořek Šípek.
