The goal of the European Heritage Days, which have been taking place since 1991, is to broaden and increase the general awareness and protection of Czech cultural heritage. During the event, members of the public can visit many historical monuments and buildings which are either inaccessible, or only partly accessible, at other times.
Among the monuments and buildings taking part in the event are interesting places from various points of view: architectural, archaeological, sacral and technical monuments, as well as museums, galleries, libraries and other spaces where large collections of cultural heritage are stored.
In addition, many accompanying events will be organised, including lectures, concerts, city festival and competitions.
Exceptional historical sites
If you enjoy mysterious places, you must not miss the guided tour of the Old Jewish Cemetery in Radlice on the 13th of September from 3pm, or the guided tour of Villa Grébovka on the 12th of September from 5pm. The villa in Havlíčkovy sady, which was built by Moritz Gröbe, a German businessman operating in the Czech Republic, is one of the Prague buildings most influenced by the Italian Renaissance.
On the 12th and the 20th of September, you can take a tour of the Folimanka Shelter, an underground nuclear fallout shelter in Prague 2, with an area of 1332 square metres and capacity of up to 1,300 people. The shelter is well maintained, lit, heated and fully functional in case of need.
