Photo of the Day: What in the world?

Update: The correct answer to today’s question was Prague, Czech Republic, where thousands of people gathered at the Saint Wenceslas statue in Wenceslas Square to commemorate the death of former Czech President Vaclav Havel. Havel was the hero of the 1989 Velvet Revolution against communist rule and became his country's first post-independence president.

This has been a year of prominent deaths. Actors, musicians, athletes and autocrats — their passing has made headlines across the world. Our photo of the day today is from the capital of a country where thousands gathered to commemorate the death of a leader.

Can you tell us where the photo is from?
