“In the past, the uncoordinated firing of rockets has increasingly threatened the safety and health of not only the inhabitants of the metropolis, but also the animals that live in the city. I believe that people will forgive their batting again this year, especially in the city center and near watercourses, ” says the mayor of Prague Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates).
The state and city police will oversee the order of the decree in the streets of the capital. Violation of the ban can result in a fine of up to ten thousand crowns on the spot and up to 100 thousand crowns in administrative proceedings.
The decree applies especially in the city center, on embankments, in parks and near hospitals and other facilities, such as homes for the elderly or veterinary stations. However, the restriction does not apply to professional fireworks which are subject to a licensing obligation. On pages praha.eu there is also an interactive map that provides up to street level to find out where this ban applies.
“I see the purpose of pyrotechnics in strengthening the safety of residents and celebrities in the center, to protect wildlife and birds, pets and many people who need peace. Whether they are in hospitals or in nursing homes. Thank you very much for your consideration and I wish you good health and well-being until the new year, ” adds the Deputy Mayor for Security Petr Hlubuček (TENT).
