Czech participation on charity diplomatic bazaar

Embassy of the Czech Republic participated at the 49th annual charity Diplomatic Bazaar at CCP complex on November 29, 2015. 



Organized with the help of a small Czech and Slovak (as there is no Slovak embassy in the Philippines) community in Manila, it earned for charity by selling Czech crystal glass and bijoux as well as original hand-made crystal glass plaques of Infant Jesus of Prague. Books for children and adults written by Czech writers in English and Filipino translations were also available as well as typical Czech Christmas cookies, and three brands of Czech beer (Pilsner Urquell, Budvar and Staropramen)
