These are exciting moments in the life of the Czech Republic, which honored the will of its people by creating a free and democratic society. Prague has always been a multicultural city where people meet, study, and work regardless of their origins and beliefs. The totalitarian part of the twentieth century was not favorable to this tradition, but the Velvet Revolution has returned these inspirations to the Czech Republic. Moreover, the Czech Republic is now a full member of the European Union and held the Presidency of the Council of the European Union in 2009. President Obama visited Prague twice in 2009 and 2010; in both cases, he chose Prague in which to present his policies on peace and disarmament.
