Monday, October 28, marks the 95th anniversary of the foundation of Czechoslovakia, with commemorative events held across the country. In Prague, the main event takes place at the Vítkov national memorial, with attendance by top Czech officials including President Miloš Zeman. On Monday evening, President Zeman is set hand out state decorating at a ceremony at Prague Castle. This year, the event has been marked by several controversies; over 20 Czech university rectors have refused to attend in solidarity with two of their colleagues who had not been invited over disputes with the president.
