Prague (dpa) - The huge sea of flowers and candles in front of the villa of Karel Gott, who died less than two weeks ago, is still growing in Prague.
The street cleaning had originally come on Monday to ensure order. Now the appointment was postponed indefinitely at the request of relatives of the deceased, as a spokeswoman of the city-owned company announced.
The fire department called on people to keep sufficient distance between candles and flammable materials such as flower paper, photographs, and letters. A fire could spread quickly.
The villa is located in a quiet residential area in the Prague district of Smichov. Many German fans also come here for a pilgrimage. The police keep a street corridor open so that neighbors can get to their homes at all. In the nearby Kinsky Gardens, the Czech metropolis has set up an alternative memorial where fans can plant flowers.
The Czech Republic had said goodbye on Saturday with a state ceremony in Prague's St. Vitus Cathedral by Karel Gott. The singer, who became famous in Germany with hits like "Bee Maya", "Lady Carneval" and "Babicka", died on the 1st of October at the age of 80 years. He was suffering from leukemia.
