Adriana Krnáčová, Mayor of Prague - Khamoro 2016

Dear visitors to the festival of Roma culture Khamoro 2016,

Allow me to welcome you to the 18th year of the festival being held in our capital. Over this time the festival, like other cultural and social events, has already became a firm part of Prague’s cultural calendar. Those who are captivated by Roma music and dance have not missed any of the Khamoro events over the years, and the festival also has its place on television. High attendance and TV ratings are evidence of the interest of both the citizens of Prague and visitors to the capital.

Prague is naturally proud of hosting such a popular event visited by people from all over the country and world. I am pleased that Prague has maintained through the support of similar festivals its status as a modern multicultural metropolis. Therefore, let me express my wish that the organizers continue their mission for many years to come and that you all have a beautiful and enriching cultural experience.
