The annual Navalis water celebrations held in commemoration of St Jan of Nepomuk will take place on the Vltava in the vicinity of Charles Bridge on Tuesday evening.
The Baroque-era celebrations, which were renewed in 2009, includes a boat regatta with richly decorated gondolas from Venice, parachutists who land on the Vltava River and a concert on a barge.
The celebrations start with a mass at St. Vitus Cathedral and end with a fireworks display. The popular event annually attracts thousands of visitors from at home and abroad.
