Magical Krumlov

Český Krumlov will celebrate the arrival of spring from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May as it will be transformed into Magical Krumlov.

The rich and varied schedule of events opens on Friday 28 April with the traditional rag-day procession by the students of Krumlov Grammar school starting at 11 am from the school building through to Budějovická Gate, Caste Stairs and Široká Street onto Svornosti Square.

Satruday afternoon at the Brewery gardens will be dedicated mostly to kids. There will be joint decorating and erection of the Maypole, making of witchcraft-themed accessories and performances by pupils of the Artistic Elementary School and ensembles from the House of Children and Youth and the Kocero Community centre followed by the festive lighting of the bonfire and sausage roasting. The braver ones can take the Mysterious Trail through the Monastery gardens starting from 8.30 pm.

Discounted Sunday viewings are offered by the Český Krumlov Monasteries, the Moldavite Museum or the Regional Museum. There will also be guided tours through the town or commented flowerbed tours in the “Magical Herb Garden”. May time photo sessions are available at the Museum Photo Studio Seidel.
