Prague City Hall will award six honorary citizenships this year, the city council decided on Thursday. The recipients include sculptor Olbram Zoubek, writer Ivan Klíma, Jiří Suchý, radio and television announcer and Charter 77 signatory Kamila Moučková, founder of the Prague International Marathon Carlo Capalbo and Emil Zátopek’s wife and Olympic medal winner Dana. The official ceremony will take place at the Old Town Hall on June 27. Honorary citizenship of Prague has been awarded since 1920. Two people, the communist-era presidents Klement Gottwald and Gustav Husák, have been removed from the list in the past.
