The 34th Václav Havel’s Place was ceremonially unveiled in front of the Ivan Olbracht´s office in Brandýs nad Labem on Sunday 17 November 2019, with the organisers honouring the imminent 30th anniversary of 17 November 1989; that date marked the start of the Velvet Revolution, which elevated Václav Havel, until then a persecuted dramatist and writer, to the position of president of the joint state of Czechs and Slovaks.
