Open Gardens Weekend

As part of the nationwide Open Gardens Weekend, which took place on June 6th and 7th, 2020, the CNT invited visitors to the Gardens of the Kroměříž Chateau, a UNESCO site, which is managed by Martin Krčma, our friend and the chairman of the CNT Supervisory Board.

The Czech National Trust supports the event every year, not only because we have our official headquarters in Kroměříž, but also because we helped restore the Chinese Pavillion in the Chateau Garden as one of our projects and because our pilot project site is very close to Kroměříž.

Virtual tour of the castle in Rožmitál pod Třemšínem

Dear friends and supporters of the Czech National Trust,

Even in these difficult times we are trying to continue our work as much as we can and we would like to invite you for a virtual tour of the castle in Rožmitál pod Třemšínem. The Czech National Trust has been supporting the reconstruction of the Rožmitál Castle for quite some time now, which also involves a close cooperation with the local volunteering club Rožmitálský zámek z.s.

We hope that the tour will provide you with a pleasant distraction from the difficult situation we are all faced with at the moment. The tour can be found on our Facebook page here.

We are thinking of you and your loved ones and wish you all good health.

We look forward to seeing you in the better times!
