More than 200 private sites and gardens will become accessible to the public!
On 10 and 11 June, residents and tourists in the Czech Republic will be allowed to visit and explore gardens that are otherwise inaccessible throughout the year.
On this occasion, the public can get acquainted with the different approaches to maintenance of gardens and get a new insight into its function and importance in life.
It must be noted that, despite the name of the event, various buildings and establishments will take part. In other words, the two-day experience will allow visitors to access numerous private sites including castles, squares, historic cemeteries, monasteries, arboretums, botanical gardens, and flower farms.
