“Even though the tourist season in our city starts officially in May, we are sitting here today and mentioning numbers of visitors which will come in the city of Klatovy during April. Thanks to two large sporting events but also cultural events, in particular Easter Cup Klatovy and Rallye Sumava, the city of Klatovy will be visited by 5,000 visitors within two weeks which is approximately one quarter of the number of inhabitants of Klatovy. All events which have been held in the city of Klatovy have positive impacts on regional economy and the quality of life.” Mentioned in his speech the mayor of Klatovy Rudolf Salvetr.

“It seems to me like in the baroque period when our city experienced incredible flourishing. Back in the days, it was especially traveling, if we can use this term, what brought economic and cultural boom. The city of Klatovy will thus maximally support all sporting and cultural events which will take place in our region in the future.” Added the Deputy Mayor of Klatovy Vaclav Chroust.

“We cannot forget to thank our partners without which the tournament could not be organized to the extent it is today. I think that it is also important that we consider children and fans arriving to Klatovy as a priority. We want them to enjoy not only the tournament itself but also the atmosphere of the city. We want them to leave Klatovy with the feeling that they gained new exciting experience. That is the reason why we are doing our best to prepare abundant accompanying program for them all. They can visit municipal monuments, swimming pool, or bowling.” Said the Chief of the Organizing Committee Kveta Kohoutova.
