Participants will be working on CNT’s pilot project – clearing parkland around the chapel and mausoleum linked to Marie Ebner Eschenbach, one of the most remarkable literary personalities of the 19th century. Participants will help with the construction of a small eco-friendly visitor centre, work will include building and finishing timber structures plus helping out with clearing of the historical park.
The site is situated near Kromeriz and its beautiful domed chapel is built in the Classicist style – a distinct piece of architecture offering splendid views of the rolling landscape. You’ll have plenty of time to explore Kromeriz and the CNT will arrange tours of its UNESCO-listed gardens, chateau and prestigious art gallery. You will also visit other nearby places of interest.
Meeting point: Participants will be picked up at Brno international airport. Other close airports include Vienna and Prague and there are good train connections. We can advise on trains.
Accommodation: Full board in a modern hostel in Kromeriz’s main square. The hostel has wi-fi and a pleasant café. Breakfast and dinner will be served in the café; lunches will be brought to the work site.
