Prague Castle welcomes visitors the whole year round, which is hardly surprising since it is the most visited historic site in the Czech Republic. Another place that doesn’t close during winter is Český Krumlov, which continues to draw in tourists during modified hours of operation and for just some parts of the castle. But even smaller historic sites, where not so many tourists come, stay open for the winter – making visits to them more intimate.
For example, Sychrov Palace is preparing a themed event for autumn and winter. Late October will see the Princely Hunt. At the palace park, children can try shooting a crossbow at 3D models of animals. Adults will also be able to try their luck, all under the supervision of an instructor. Professionals will then perform sport and combat shooting. The good news is that this action takes place in any kind of weather. The end of October and end of November will be given over to fairytales at Sychrov. This year costumed guides will become fairytale characters and act out well-known stories directly in the rooms of the palace. But visitors will also have to assist good in the struggle against evil. Sychrov will stay open over Christmas, which is the peak season for the palace. Being close to Prague, visitors can come here to escape the slush of the city or queues in front of Prague Castle and experience the Christmas atmosphere at this romantic palace.
