Ringo’s All-Starr Band to play Prague

Ringo Starr and his All-Starr Band will play the Prague Congress Center this month, but the legendary Beatles’ drummer won’t see much of the Czech capital, as his private plane will fly him in and out on the same day.

Czech Position has learnt that the Vatican wants to appoint two new Czech Cardinals next year with well-known priest and theologist Tomáš Halík reckoned to be in the running.

Sansho: Awesome. Which doesn’t equate to enthusiasm

The Anglo-Asian restaurant Sansho has already had a monument to its fame raised in the media, and for good reason. We visited it with one thing in mind: either to 1) festoon the monument with yet more flowers, or 2) furnish it with a more accurate inscription.

As it clocks up its 80th anniversary this November, Barrandov Studios could not be a better barometer for the mercurial fortunes of the Czech nation.

The Czech Post Office (Česká pošta) has announced it will release a new self-adhesive stamp on Wednesday featuring the country’s most beloved inept handymen — Pat and Mat. The two stop-motion animated characters, known for saying nothing apart from their catch phrase “A je to!” (And it’s done!) — which they invariably proclaim after a job decidedly not well done — first appeared in a 1976 short film called “The Tinkers” (Kuťáci).
