Angels descend from on high in Czech Republic

Thousands of people watched angels flying down from a church tower during the last Advent weekend Christmas market in Ustek, in Northern Bohemia on Saturday.

Three young women dressed in celestial robes were lowered from the 30-metre high St. Peter and Paul Church tower in the town’s main square.

“It is a great experience to see the people under you, children smiling and awaiting the angel flying right to them,” said the oldest angel and mother of two children, Anezka Polackova.
