Masopust, the Czech equivalent of Shrove Tuesday/Carnival/Mardi Gras, is a potent mix of silly costumes, cold weather, alcohol, and unhealthy food — a combination perfectly captured in this photo from the Valasske muzeum v prirode (Wallachian Open Air Museum) celebration in Roznov pod Radhostem, Zlin Region (south Moravia).

Play Prague’s emergency siren whenever you want

Photo of Prague

Prague under attack from concentric circles

Since 2002’s floods, Prague has tested its emergency sirens at noon on the first Wednesday of every month, routinely frightening tourists and newcomers to the city.

But what if that’s not enough?

What if you want to hear the emergency siren on demand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week?

PraguePig.com is here to help:

The audio track on this video was taken from the official Prague website, where, rather bizarrely, the city makes MP3s of its various test sirens available to play and download.

So now it can be siren day, every day.

Enjoy responsibly.
