Journey to Israel (28. 4. 2015)
Added: May 2, 2015
Václav Havel was the first president in the history of Czechoslovakia and the first leader of a post-communist country to visit the State of Israel, on a trip that took place on April 25–27 1990. Among the issues he discussed with the Israeli President Haim Herzog and other representatives was the possibility of holding peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians in Prague and the exodus of Soviet Jews through Czechoslovakia. During his visit to Jerusalem, Havel delivered the speech Kafka and My Presidency at the Hebrew University. Since that time, the Czech Republic and Israel have been developing and strengthening the historical ties rediscovered by Vaclav Havel 25 years ago.
