Safety of participants

The smooth running of the festival and the safety of its participants is always a priority for us, starting from the first year. Prague Pride is an event that will not give some people peace of mind. That is why we do not underestimate security.

We work closely with several departments of the Police of the Czech Republic, with the City of Prague. Prague and the city police, as well as with a private security agency. Coordination meetings begin before the festival, we work with the brochure Safety Standards for organizers of sports, cultural and social events, published by the Ministry of the Interior.
