The legendary Czech traveler, author and filmmaker Miroslav Zikmund turned 98 this week, the news site novinky.cz reported. Zikmund formed a legendary duo with the late Jiří Hanzelka who died in 2003. They visited 83 countries with their famous Tatra 87, made over 150 documentary films and wrote over 20 books about their adventures. The famous duo were ambassadors not only for Czechoslovakia but for its Tatra cars. While last year Zikmund celebrated his birthday in Rio de Janeiro in grand style, this year he opted for a modest family party in his home town Zlin.
