The Sokol sport movement (”sokol” means falcon) and its massive gymnastic festivals are not only about physical, but also about moral and intellectual training. The movement played an important role in Czech nationalism and the creation of Czechoslovakia in 1918 yet was banned three times in its history (by the Austria-Hungarian monarchy, by Nazi Germany and by the Communist regime). However, it never disappeared for good. For 150 years, the members of Sokol have called each other “brother” and “sister”. When walking around Prague, don’t miss the elegant “sokolovna” (Sokol gymnasium); there is at least one in each district. It can be recognised by the red logo or the falcon statue.
