The organizers as every year prepared a attraction for this year's ball. An opportunity to have your picture taken by a professional photographer and the possibility to take the pictures home right away or have them emailed. This « Pictures from the Ball » offer was highly appreciated by the guest.
Every year the organizers from the National House of Vinohrady try to prepare a ball that would live up to the name « representative ». The indoor decorations, a quality program and a pleasant atmosphere are the basic foundation for organizing an exceptional cultural and social event. However, the most important part have always been the guest and this year was no exception. An almost sold out ball and positive feedback to this year's 24th Representative Ball of the National House of Vinohrady are the best motivation for the next year.
Every event of such significance as the Representative Ball in Vinohrady is a sign of cultural character of the citizens of Prague 2. And as we can see, the demand for such events is still very high it even in the strong competition of commercial entertainment.
Hopefully we'll meet again next year for the 25th anniversary of the Representative Ball of the National House of Vinohrady, which will be hold on April 3rd, 2020.
