FIVE-PETALLED ROSE CELEBRATIONS
ČESKÝ KRUMLOV 

Term: 16 – 18 June 2017, 31th Year

THIS YEAR´S THEME: 

This year we will remember an important event that took place in 1587 AD – the wedding of William of Rosenberg and Polyxena of Pernštejn. Guests from near and far will gather in Krumlov to take part in the wedding feast at the Brewery Gardens and several other places around the town together with our visitors. There will be guests arriving from Italy, Greece, Germany, Austria but also from the distant New World. Exquisite gifts will be presented to our sovereign, for example a genuine Italian gondola that will sail the Vltava river waters. Historical processions will pass through the town and a rich schedule of events across ten stages the town awaits all wedding guests.
