Do You Know the Tradition of Czech Puppetry?
Czech puppets, hand puppets, and puppet theatre as such has a long tradition. It is still popular among the Czechs, with nine professional puppet theatres in the country and hundreds of semi-amateur or amateur theatre companies. A few years ago, this Czech tradition was inscribed in the UNESCO list of intangible heritage. You can meet puppeteers at town and castle festivals in the summer, while the autumn and winter months are an ideal opportunity to visit puppet museums and theatre performances. And we will tell you where to go.
