Ambassador´s welcome note

Dobrý den a vítejte, milý návštěvníku,

Whether you are a friend of Luxembourg, an occasional passer-by, looking for something in particular or simply curious, it is nice to see you on our homepage.

I have arrived in Prague in the early autumn of 2017 to take up my duties as Ambassador of Luxembourg to the Czech Republic and have started living in Prague 5 - Smichov, enjoying this beautiful city every day. The Czech capital has a wealth of history, culture and architecture on display that one cannot get enough of. I am also looking forward to visiting the countryside and to getting acquainted with Czech people throughout the republic as well as their achievements and realisations and the beauty of their lands. I am interested in their testimonies and in the things that they are proud of.

With the very motivated group of colleagues in the Embassy team we will continue to take good care of the excellent relations that exist between the Czech Republic and Luxembourg, who are partners and allies in Europe and are enjoying a long-standing bilateral friendship. We will strengthen those ties and even seek to improve them by exploring new areas of joint interest and cooperation. We will also endeavour to present and share our cultural and historical commonalities and also, naturally, introduce you to the Grand Duchy, including some of its less known features and hidden charms.

Should you have questions, or business with Luxembourg or wish to spend a few days in the country, please feel free to come to us for advice or assistance.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

Přeji Vám hezký den a brzy na viděnou!


H.E. Mr Gérard Philipps
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary
