The Sokol Slet is almost here!

-ES- 6 2012 Aktuality English

It is only June 21 but the Sokol slet of 2012 will start in 10 days! We expect 10500 gymnasts to arrive- not only from the Czech Republic, but from the whole world. I am already looking forward to meeting my friends and readers from Australia, USA, Canada, Croatia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Slovakia, Sweden, Germany and from other countries where the Sokols propagate noble-minded ideas about the harmony between our souls and our bodies.

The main programs will take place at the SYNOP Tip Arena in Vrsovice starting on July 3 at 7 P.M. (Gala Program). On July 5 at 9 P.M. there will be a program of group performances, and Friday, July 6 another program of group performances that will start at 2 P.M. This will conclude the slet.

But there will be other programs available in Prague, e.g. in the yard of the Tyrs House, in Old Town Square or in the theaters. The opera The Bartered Bride will be performed by Sokol lay actors and singers at the ABC theater, and another play may be seen at the Ypsilonka theater. There will be puppet shows, folk music groups, etc. Lots to be seen and heard!

And do not forget to come and greet the Sokols as they march through Prague on SUNDAY from the lower end of Vaclavske namesti to Narodni trida, then through Namesti Jana Palacha to Old Town Square. For more information please visit the following websites:
