  • Conserving Rozmital Castle, Central Bohemia, Czech Republic

    Posted on November 17, 2018



    Dates: 19/08/2019 – 26/08/2019
    The conservation work will be taking place in one of the oldest and culturally significant Gothic-Renaissance castles, in a small historic town one hour from Prague.  You will help to clear and restore the park and clean the debris from some of the castle rooms.  This work will be mostly manual, led and supervised by members of the Czech National Trust and the castle’s management. No special skills are required.

    Rozmital is surrounded by a beautiful pristine forest, which has recently achieved National Park status, and you will have the chance to explore this scenic landscape.  The working holiday coincides with a Historic Fair in the town and you will see different performances and dances in your free time.  Many other activities are planned by the holiday leaders: trips will be organised to visit the two nearby castles of Breznice and Blatna, a beautiful baroque pilgrimage site  and the museum of composer Antonin Dvorak in the village of Vysoka.

    Meeting point:  Participants will be met at the bus station in Pribram, near Rozmital, which is an easy bus ride from Prague.

    ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Accommodation:  You will stay in shared rooms in the newly-renovated Pension Ryba, a short walk from the castle. Bedding and towels provided.

    Price:  £150

    This holiday is organised by the Czech National Trust (CNT) which was established in 2013 as a charity aiming to support the rescue, reconstruction and promotion of Czech historic and natural heritage, and to encourage voluntary involvement in heritage conservation.  It is based in Prague and Kromeriz, which is in the south east of the Czech Republic.
