Prague Mayor hands out free soup on Christmas Eve

25-12-2015

Politicians were handing out free fish soup in the centre of Prague on Christmas Eve. Scores of people formed a long queue on the city's Old Town Square to receive the soup from Prague Mayor Adriana Krnáčová, dressed in a chef's apron, who was assisted by ANO Party leader and Finance Minister Andrej Babiš and other councilors. Some three thousand portions of the soup, which for many Czechs is the first course of Christmas dinner, were prepared this year. Several other districts of Prague, including Vršovice, also joined the tradition this year.
