ITB was the place where the people form south Bohemia reminded the 20th anniversary of the first free elections in the Republic of South Africa.

The republic of South Africa is located on the different continent, but it is interesting to compare its experience on conversion from racial segregation to democracy and the fall of totality in former Czechoslovakia a quarter of century ago. Both of these anniversaries from different countries are very similar,” said Marek Vochozka, the rector of ITB

After formal fall of apartheid in 1994 free elections and the development of democracy started in the Republic of South Africa and this country has had the most progressive and most liberal constitution on the world.
