People should not wear wreaths, on the contrary, it is desirable that they bring their own stationery if they want to write in a book of condolences.

The Rudolfinum will be open until 18:00. Due to the monument protection of the building, it will not be possible to place candles on the staircase to Rudolfinum, for example. However, it will be possible to do so in a nearby park, where a panel exhibition The Whimsical Years of Jiří Menzel will also take place.

According to Menzel’s last wish, a public funeral was not planned. Menzelová decided to reverent the meeting after the great interest of friends, colleagues and fans of the successful filmmaker.
