The Ambassadors held a joint speech in which they pointed out this traditional Baltic and Nordic National Days’ celebration took place in Prague for the tenth time. The joint celebration is a symbol of Baltic and Nordic close relations as well as an excellent and broad cooperation with the Czech Republic.
