6th International Festival of Shanty Choirs

Prague citizens and its visitors had the opportunity to listen and to enjoy beautiful shanty songs at the most attractive places in the heart of Prague - Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square and Wallenstein garden……. Not only the historical setting but also the Vltava river - the theme of many famous songs - created the unique atmosphere of the shanty festival. The audience was charmed by colourful display of costumes, and especially by the excellent performance of shanty participants.
