There is also the Emperor Rudolf II , the Rabbi Lowi and his Golem, the builder of the ancient astronomical clock “Orloj” of Old Town, a Clown, a Devil and a Seducer.

The new masks and costumes were created by Sarka Polak- Hejnova. Scenery was designed by Miloslav Hermanek, Emil Sirotek and Antonin Danhelka. Jiri Srnec said: “It was my intention to reveal my love for the city where I live, for the place which has much magic for everyone who is willing to absorb it. “
