Winterlude in Ottawa – Czech participation in traditional winter celebrations

On Sunday, February 10th, the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ottawa took part in the EU Ice Block Challenge organized by the Delegation of the European Union in Ottawa.

EU Ice Block Challenge was held in ByWard Market, Clarendon Lane. The visitors had the chance to try their luck and break the ice blocks which contained various objects from the member states of the EU, each block per one member state. The Czech Republic had an ice block which contained a book about the Czech Republic, a classical music CD, a Czech flag and a hockey puck. The visitors got chisel and hammer and could dig out their favorite object out of the ice block.

It was hard work but rewarded with beautiful objects. We congratulate to all participants of the ice block challenge.
