The Flood of 2002

Prague under water
Marking the 10th anniversary of the Prague floods in 2002, Czech Photo Gallery is displaying 90 photos tracing the destructive flooding of the capital.

The exhibit that runs through October 7 features works of 31 photographers who immortalized moments in the dramatic days in August 2002, when the country was hit by 500-year-floods. It builds on the 2002 fall exhibit that garnered much critical acclaim in the Czech Republic and abroad and which toured overseas to New York City.

The organizers have also compiled a book containing 200 shots from 44 top photographs on the subject.
The publication is both in English and Czech and can only be purchased during the exhibit.
