The anti-terrorism measures are to supplement standard precautions to deal with countless revelers partying in Prague and across the country.

The measures include police officers patrolling the streets carrying semi-automatic weapons, as well as concrete barricades installed in key public places in Prague and Brno to thwart similar attacks.

Police will also patrol the Vltava river on dinghies, while all cars are to be banned from parking in Wenceslas Square from noon Saturday.

A special police taxi team will also be deployed to deal with potential fraudulent taxi services offered to the public.

The Czech Republic is currently on a “level one terrorism threat” – the lowest level alert.
