King in Prague

King Norodom Sihamoni arrived in Prague on September 18. He met Czech President Vaclav Klaus on September 19 and pledged to strengthen relations between the two countries.

The King lived in the Czech Republic from 1962 to 1975 where he attended high school and then studied ballet and classical music at Prague's Academy of Performing Arts.

"I feel great joy to be here as a representative of my country, but even greater joy as a man who returned to the country that was, and remains, my second home," Sihamoni said in Czech.
