17.30 - 21.30
This year's Prinsjesdag was held at a very original venue: Grévin Museum Prague. We believe you found the summary of the 'Troonrede' given by the Dutch Ambassador, H.E. Mr. Kees Klompenhouwer as interesting as we did, and surely you also enjoyed the amusing and original speech from the internationally famous economist Tomáš Sedláček.
Taking pictures with wax celebrities was real fun, and the Indonesian rijsttafel tasted just great, as usual. Thank you all for spending this beautiful - still Summer - evening with us!
Also, we would like to thank our gold sponsors, ING Bank and Shell Czech Republic, our bronze sponsor DBH, and the partners of the event: Heineken CR, Ahold CR and Zátiší Catering Group, for their generous support.
