The two-day NATO Days in Ostrava and the Air Force Days of the Czech Republic Army will begin on Saturday near Ostrava’s Mosnov Airport in Novozzycin. From early in the morning, several kilometers of convoys were forming from all directions. People wait in line for tens of minutes. The longest convoy is now on the I/58 road, heading for Ostrava, according to the operator of the special police line Michal Tiché.

NATO Days is Europe’s largest security show. Admission to the event is free and is attended by over 200,000 people. However, last year, due to the effects of self-restraint due to the new coronavirus, the number of visitors was about 60,000.
