Several dozens of police intervened in the town centre where a clash broke out between 150 far-right radicals and about 300 of their opponents who attacked them, throwing glass bottles, apples and firecrackers across the stream separating the two groups.
Eyewitnesses said bags with excrements were also thrown.
The police finally dispersed the attackers.
No one was injured.
The far-right march across the town then continued with the participants chanting slogans such as "Freedom, Freedom!", "Nothing But the Nation!" and "We Don´t Want Multi-culti!". It ended an hour later without any further incidents.
On the opponents' side of the stream, a concert was held and banners with the Antifa movement's logo and with slogans condemning the nationalist march were put up.
The death anniversary of St Wenceslas, a prince from the Premyslide dynasty and the patron saint of Bohemia who was murdered on September 28, 935, is celebrated as the Day of Czech Statehood and it is a national holiday in the Czech Republic.
