Prague is celebrating its special day at the Expo today with a variety of shows, featuring Czech National Theatre opera singer Vratislav Kriz, Prague fashion designer Eva Brzakova, the National Marionette Theatre's puppet play, jazz from Autumn tunes and rock music from Zina Punx.
The Prague Pavilion at the Urban Best Practices Area is showcasing its flood control technology. The country was hit by the worst flood in its history in the summer of 2002, resulting in heavy losses. The theme of the pavilion is "a modern city protecting its cultural heritage."
The pavilion also displays old pictures of Shanghai and has a Czech illustrator, Martin Hron, making drawings for visitors on the spot.
