It is not necessary to persuade anybody about the attractivities offered in Český Krumlov. However, Český Krumlov and its historic sights, museums, galleries and other touristic attractions are inaccesible for the disabled. Sinuous, narrow streets covered with uneven pavement of stone,architectural treasures with many stairs and much roughness make for the disabled many barriers which are difficult to get through both in movement and orientation. We are aware of the fact that it is impossible to clear away these obstacles and that nobody can make Český Krumlov the town without barriers, friendly for all handicapped people. In spite of this we think that we are able to do something for the handicapped to enable them to visit the sights and admire the beauty of the historical heritage. If we cannot change the town we can make the town accesible for the disabled temporarily. Therefore in 2004 there was an idea to prepare an event called "Disability Day – Day without Barriers ". According to our visitors´acceptance of the event we think that the event was very successful and therefore we organize it again this year. The point of the event "Disability Day – Day without Barriers " is to make the part of the world natural and cultural heritage of UNESCO the town of Český Krumlov and its chosen cultural monuments accessible for the disabled visitors by the assistants and temporary ways at least for one day, this year for a weekend.

Accessibility by road:
The main car park will be P1 car park in Jelení Garden bellow the castle (see navigation and orientation system of the town). Car park is free for the registered visitors who will obtain parking card at the car park entry. The visitors coming by the train arriving at Český Krumlov at 9:51 will be taken by two low-rise buses to the car park where the information tent will be located. The buses will transport people from P1 car park to the Riding Hall where the castle tour will start. On the bus station there will be assistents marked by special signs who will give information and show the way to the square.
