They addressed a similar request for entry to the president two years ago, when he was asked to remove the roadblocks and inspected it. After two years, according to Růžička and Lacina, the situation is even worse. The castle is closed.
“When deciding to close the complex airtight, one can of course argue with the state of emergency and the danger that visitors will become infected with covid-19. However, this is certainly no more a threat in the area of Prague Castle than anywhere else in the Czech Republic. We believe that it is quite sufficient to strictly respect government measures that respond to the current danger, “say the authors of the letter.
The Prague Castle complex has been closed since October 9 in connection with the government’s epidemic measures. It was also closed in the spring. People could not enter its premises for more than two months from mid-March to the second half of May. President Miloš Zeman was staying at the castle in Lány at that time. He returned to his castle office at the end of May.
The Prague Castle complex remained closed at the beginning of December. President’s spokesman Jiří Ovčáček said that ensuring the health and safety of visitors came first and that measures for museums and galleries, as well as measures for castles, chateaux and monuments, could not be automatically applied to the Prague Castle complex. He then drew attention to the risk of forming queues.
