The Praga Cantat Choir Competition and Choir Festival have established itself as an important choral event in the recent 30 years to which over 1000 choirs from over 40 countries attended.

Prague, the city with hundreds of towers and its numerous churches, castles, palaces, the world known Charles Bridge, the Hradschin Castle and the historic Old Town, a UNESCO world heritage site, offers a wonderful ambience for the Praga Cantat Festival. Both the choir competition and the choir festival are held in the impressive Mayakovsky Hall of the National House, a beautiful Neo-Renaissance building.
