Who? What? Where? When? Why?

PhotoQuiz!

Who are all these people? Where are they? And what are they doing here?

This is your task for our Friday brainteaser: answer these questions.

Here are some hints. (The answers are at the bottom of the page.)

1 They’re assembled in a small town near Prague.

2 Václav Klaus and other dignitaries made speeches here.

3 The occasion was a recent state holiday.

4 It’s a new but important holiday for the Czech nation.

5 An English Christmas carol was written about the person commemorated by the holiday.

6 Part of Czech contemporary composer Jan Jirásek’s Missa Propria was sung in another, somewhat similar ceremony the previous day at the Basilica of St Václav, also in this town.

And here's the 'other side' of the photo, if you need a hint
