The Czech people celebrate 100 years of independence and sovereignty in 2018. Collaborating on security and alliance during the course of the century with the United States of America, the Czechs mark a centennial of struggle for freedom as well as the resolute establishment of a thriving democracy. This year, the Czech Republic rejoices in its prosperity and industry as well as mutual transatlantic inspiration and friendship.

“This is truly a very special year for all Czechs back home in the heart of Europe as well as around the world. It represents a great opportunity not only to pop the cork but also to explore where we are heading, while reflecting on the twists and turns of the past hundred years. Here, in the United States, it is a special occasion for the hundreds of thousands of those who feel their heart beat in Czech rhythm and for the crucial role the United States has played in the story of Czech independence in the past, the present and will surely play in the days to come.” Hynek Kmoníček, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the United States of America.

Celebrating throughout the year 2018, events will be taking place in the US cities of Washington, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Memphis, and Kansas City, just to name a few. In the US capital, the Czech Embassy is partnering with a number of prestigious venues in commemoration of the significant anniversary.
