Around 1,300 people left on a special train from Prague to Romania on Tuesday evening to take part in the annual music festival in Banát in the south-west of the country, which gets underway on Wednesday evening.
The festival was established to raise money in support of the local Czech community. Over 30 Czech bands and musicians are set to perform in the seventh edition of the event, which takes place in the village of Eibenthal.
The Czech community settled in Banát in the 1920s. Today there are around 2,000 Czechs living in the rural area.
