Prague - Czech President Milos Zeman and Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka attended the fourth Advent Concert with a charity collection in Saint Vitus cathedral today.

The proceeds of the collection will be given to the Saint Stephen Hospice in Litomerice, north Bohemia, that has provided health and social care to the incurably ill and dying people, their families and relatives for over 16 years.

The money will be spent on the staff's salaries.

The concert with various performers including pop star Karel Gott was broadcast live by Czech Television (CT) that has been staging Advent Concerts since 1991.

In the over 20-year history of Advent Concerts, more than 155 million crowns have been collected to sponsor 93 organisations.

Zeman and Duka met in Saint Vitus cathedral at Prague Castle. Some of its buildings are claimed by the church.

Zeman and Duka may reach an agreement on the church restitution at Prague Castle at the beginning of next year.

The Church applied for nine buildings in the Prague Castle complex in summer.

The Social Democrats that are forming the new government are against the valid scheme of return of property to churches.

($1 = 20.253 crowns)
