Thousands of people attended the function.Spaces for the event, which had to be reserved, were fully booked.The guests sat at a 500 metre long (1640 ft) table on the Charles Bridge in Prague on Tuesday sharing food and drinks they had brought from home themselves.

The event’s organiser said that the celebration was possible due to a lack of tourists in the famously charming city.

“ We want to celebrate the end of the corona virus crisis letting people meet and show they are not afraid to meet, that they are not afraid to take a piece of a sandwich from their neighbours,” said Ondrej Kobza, organiser of the party and the owner of the cafe in the city.

One attendee, Galina Khomchenko- Krejcikova, said she found the event on Facebook and “thought it was interesting.”

There have been fewer than 12,000 infections in the Czech Republic, a country of 10 million. About 350 people have died.

The Czech Republic was quick to enforce a lock down and has managed to avoid the pandemic spreading.

Last week, the government permitted public gatherings of up to 1000 people. Swimming pools, museums,zoos and castles can now open without any limit in the number of visitors.
