  • Two Czech citizens have been found dead in the French Alps. The French police found their bodies around noon on Thursday at the bottom of an approximately 30-meter-deep crack on the north face of the Barre des Écrins, the highest mountain in the Dauphiné Alps, at an altitude of approximately 3,900 meters.


  • Four new cases of monkeypox were recorded in Prague on Thursday, the second highest number in one day so far. This brings the total number of confirmed cases in the Czech Republic up to 20.


  • The increase in the sum for film incentives, as anchored in the draft amendment to the Czech state budget for 2022, will continue in 2023 and 2024, with the cap of 150 million crowns per film, which means a chance for more projects, Culture Minister Martin Baxa told media today.


  • PM Petr Fiala bestowed the Karel Kramar Medal, the Czech prime minister’s award, on the outgoing Ukrainian ambassador Yevhen Perebyinis today. Perebyinis became the ambassador to the Czech Republic in 2017. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy dismissed him from the post a few weeks ago together with Ukraine’s ambassadors to Germany, Hungary, Norway and India.


  • The Czech government has backed allowing its fighter jets to protect neighbouring Slovakia’s air space from September, the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday.
