Not sure what to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered.
1. Havel – An exhibition
This weekend marks the opening of the extensive Havel exhibit at the Dox Center for Contemporary Art on what would have been his 80th birthday. It will present the photography of two leading Czech photographers, Tomki Němec and Bohdan Holomíček, who for a number of years recorded important historical events as well as ordinary moments in the life of Václav Havel, playwright, politician, president, and citizen. Over three hundred photos will be accompanied by hitherto unseen, artistically produced documentary film footage by Petr Jančárek.

4. Warm up with the stew and soup fare @ Smichov

5. Halloween party @ Atelier Club
Get dressed up and get hammered at Atelier Club’s Halloween bash on Saturday night. There’s going to be a costume contest for cash-money and local DJ’s doing their thing. As far as Halloween in Prague goes, this is one of the only non-private games in town.
