Monday is the Day of Czech Statehood, a national holiday that is held annually on St. Wenceslas Day. It was on September 28, 935 that St. Wenceslas, the Duke of Bohemia and today patron of the Czech state, was murdered by his brother Boleslav the Cruel. Like last year, the holiday is accompanied by an exhibition for children entitled My State explaining symbols of the Czech nation; this year it opened several days ahead of the anniversary outside Liechtenstein Palace at Prague's Kampa.
