Advent Days 2022

Advent Days 2022

The National Heritage Institute, the State Castle and Chateau Jindřichův Hradec and the Society for the Restoration of Monuments in the Jindřichův Hradec Region cordially invite you to visit The Advent Days organized the 3rd and 4th December. After a two-year forced hiatus, we are very much looking forward to the opportunity to continue a fine tradition and hope that visitors will also be enthusiastic. We will be hosting a marketplace with original wares in the second and third courtyard. For this year, we invited more sellers of salty and sweet specialties. Not only fans of various hot beverages, but also lovers of fish delicacies or cheese will find something to their liking.

Children and adults alike will enjoy a small menagerie, an exhibition of falconry-trained birds of prey or archery. The 500-year-old black kitchen will be open again. Artistic carver, blacksmith, potters, basket weavers and a woodcarver will demonstrate their skills. The castle's creative workshop in the Spanish Wing will be decorating the Christmas sweets and making Christmas decorations with natural materials. The decorations made of beads will be created in the workshop in the Gothic Palace,.

The programme of both weekend days will also offer a number of artistic performances. There will be dancing in the castle's Rondell and theatre in the courtyard and in the Holy Spirit Chapel. The chapel will also be the venue for a performance by the Adam Michna's Temple Choir on Saturday and an ecumenical service on Sunday with the participation of the pastors from even three Christian churches.

We look forward to your visit.
