16-10-2009

A new bronze statue of Albrecht of Wallenstein, a 17th century Czech nobleman, politician and army commander, was unveiled in the Wallenstein Palace on Friday to mark the 375th anniversary of nobleman’s death. Senate chairman Přemysl Sobotka and members of the Wallenstein noble family were among the guests present at the unveiling ceremony. The idea of erecting a statue of Wallenstein on the premises of the Senate was prompted by the huge success of an exhibition on Wallenstein in the Czech capital earlier.
