Financial stimulation for parents, flower for the mother and toys: these are the gifts that have been handed over by the city of Prostějov to the families of new-borns so far. The birth of the first citizen of the city is celebrated with high honours and is thereby marked with a financial stimulation for parents.

Not only will the tradition be preserved this year, but it is made even better through a significant increase in the amount given. Since 2013, the city authorities have been giving a financial gift of 2,000 crones, an amount which remained unchanged for a long period; hence councillors came up with an idea of an increase. This way the first citizen of Prostějov born on the 1st of January 2019 will get 10 thousand crones (around 385 euro) from the town, according to the Mayor of the town František Jura.

The donation will be handed over in the hospital with the participation of the Mayor, spokespersons and media representatives.
