At BookWorld, you could bump into Milan Kundera or Vaclav Havel, as well as dozens of friendly, aspiring writers only too keen to tell you about their latest work. More than 600 exhibitors from 26 countries and 20,000 keen readers visit throughout the duration of BookWorld. From the 12th May – 3rd June 2009 the Prague
Springtime Music Festival also runs, bringing the world's best orchestras to Prague's State Opera House. Honouring Bedrich Smetana, father of Czech music, it opens on the anniversary of his death with a traditional performance of his orchestral cycle, My Country.http://www.belvilla.co.uk/detail.php?fh_lo...amp;fh_season=z
