The beauty of the African nature shot in the national parks of Tanzania and Kenya.
film screening
11.00 - Lukáš Synek - Northern IRAQ
The Americans Are Leaving, the Backpackers Are Coming!
Vacation in Iraq? Why not – the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan is a “different kind of
Iraq” where we regularly hitchhiked, chatted with armed Peshmerga and enjoyed cocktails in
the streets at night.
discussion, slide show
12.00 - Pepa Formánek - Siberut, the Way of the Shamans
Josef Formánek, writer and founder of Koktejl magazine, set out on a journey into the
rainforest to meet the people whose culture has made it to the point where our culture once
started. He spent several months with the Mentawai, shared their everyday life with them and
even underwent a ritual tattooing ceremony. But just because he departed Siberut does not
mean that the story of his journey is over…
Pepa is the author of the bestsellers Prsatý muž a zloděj příběhů [The bosomy man and thief
of stories], Mluviti pravdu [To speak the truth] and Umřel jsem v sobotu [I died on a Saturday],

13.30 - Petr Horký, Mirek Náplava - A Racially Incorrect Discussion About Africa
After ten years of journeys to Africa, Miroslav Náplava and Petr Horký have put together a
somewhat controversial discussion about the fact that many things that are said about Africa
are non-sense... Do you know how often the aboriginals in Malawi are converted from
Christians to Muslims and vice-versa?
discussion, slide show
14.30 - Srdcař, Radek Jaroš - Annapurna, the 13th Eight-thousander
The best Czech mountain climber of today, who only needs to climb the K2 to complete his
collection of our planet’s eight-thousand meter peaks. Will he manage to set out this year, after
his last expedition ended with finger amputations?
discussion, slide show, film screening from the production of Srdcař
15.30 - Mgr. Miroslav Bobek - The Return of Wild Horses
The discussion about the successful Return of Wild Horses project and the saving of
Przewalski's horse will be personally led by the Director of the Prague Zoo Miroslav Bobek.
The dramatic transport to Mongolia was finally completed by the successful release of four
mares into open nature.

16.30 - The Story of Felix Baumgartner

Final Report Holiday World 2013
Felix Baumgartner is not an adrenaline junkie. He simply does not accept limits. He wants to
be the first person to exceed the speed of sound while in a freefall.
film screening

10.00 - Albania, a Beauty with a Bad Reputation
Have you left a part of your soul somewhere in the world, just like Petr Horký and Mirek
Náplava in Albania? Why are people afraid of this country? What is the truth and what are
film screening
11.00 - Jirka Kolbaba - Bluewhite Silence - the Mysterious Antarctica
The ice continent will always arouse cravings in romantic souls for new knowledge and
adventure. Jirka has made three fascinating journeys to Antarctica. He travelled to the ice

Herds of thousands of wildebeests and zebras return to Kenya’s national parks each July.
They are accompanied by hungry beasts of prey – and sometimes also by top photographers.
This large migration of animal herds tells its stories and Vašek, a holder of the Czech Press
Photo award, captures them on his photographs…
discussion, slide show
14.00 - Dan Přibáň - In a Trabant through South America 2012
The first meeting with eccentric traveler Dan Přibáň - immediately after his return from the

and across Africa, late last year Dan set out with a bunch of friends to South America in order
to prove to all doubters that “if there’s a will, there’s a way!"
discussion, slide show
15.00 - Petr Slezák - Diving Beyond the Arctic Circle

Ueli Steck is possibly the fastest climber in the world. In this unique motion picture, Ueli

Comparison with the previous year
This year in figures (numbers of exhibitors, structure of exhibitors, share of international and
domestic clients) seems to be similar like in 2012. The quality and the structure of the
exhibitors remained the same. We registered both the same number of presented countries
and touristboards. In Holiday World 2013 were present 60 travel agencies. Holiday World
distributed more than 100 vouchers on services of participating travel agencies. The public
highly appreciated the accompanying programe World Film.
