St. Wenceslas, the patron saint of the Czech, was a Prince. Unfortunately, a power struggle eventually resulted in his murder.

Wenceslas was born in 907 and was apparently murdered on September 28 in 935 by his younger brother Boleslav at the entrance to the church Stara Boleslav.

An Oldtimer, a TATRA build by the renowned Czech Slovakian car designer Hans Ledwinski, caught the attention of the guests. The Tatra was parked on the lawns of the Ambassador ‘s residence.

It is alleged that the this particular Tatra was once used by a former Czech Slovakian President.
