Glass Town of Železný Brod
The Glass Town Festival in Železný Brod brings together glassmakers, designers, collectors as well as admirers of glassmaking arts and crafts from the ranks of the general public.
The beginnings of the town's celebration of glass was very modest, but today it ranks among the major cultural and social events in North Bohemia. Glass beauty in Železný Brod will be livened up with a programme scheduling music and dance performances. Admission to the event is free of charge.

It would not be possible to hold the Glass Town Festival anywhere else but in Železný Brod, because in 1920, the world-famous school of glassmaking was founded here. Its impressive building attracts the attention of visitors not only because of its reputation, but also thanks to the specific atmosphere and folk architecture features. North Bohemia is often associated in the Czech Republic with the glassmaking tradition as well as costume jewellery. You can find out about some of its history in the Museum of Glass and Jewellery in Jablonec nad Nisou
