Further Information:


This year´s festival folows the celebrations of the 600 year town existence which took place in 1909, when the Lord of Schwarzenberg participated at this historical festival plus the celebration of this anniversary in 1969, when the 2nd Five-petalled Rose Celebrations took place. As every year, the festival is devoted to the last Rozemberk lorrds and the times of Renaissance. In a long term festival´s strategy, the year with "nines" aims to introduce all town historical periods from Gothic to Roccoco. Therefore, only once in ten years this concept is presented. During the week before the festival, there will be series of events devoted to the town´s 700 year anniversary and held in the town. Most of the events will be interesting for local residents e.g. re-consecration of St.Mary pillar at the main square Svornosti, a mass celebrating St.Vitus or openning ceremony for "Carillon for Europe" or city tours for local residents. The festival is organized by the town residents adn many of them are proud to participate at the costumed parade which has becaem a tradition. Organizers wish the festival to be an event looking back to history and recalling the towns prosperity and growth in the past centuries. Lets hope that this year´s festival brings to the towns thousands of old times lovers as every year.

Costumed parade participation


..

Because this year´s celebrations are devoted to the town´s anniversary " the 700 years of Český Krumlov existence", also the costumed parade will be organized differently then in the past. The main parade on Saturday June, 20 follows the town´s history milestones e.i. the Division of Roses, Hall of Masks and Baroque Theatre. The parade is divided into Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Roccoco sections. Each section has a limited number of participants, who can join. This is mainly due to the director´s intent and also there is a maximum seating capacity available in the Eggenberg brewery gardens. More information available in downloads.

Re-consecration of St.Mary´s Pillar

Dates From - To
15.06.2009   (Mo) 17:30

..

Saint Vitus the Patron Saint of Český Krumlov, will be remembered on 15th June 2009 by a celebration at the St Vitus church, with a renewed consecration of the plague column dedicated to Virgin Mary. This sculpture was commissioned in 1715 - 1716 by princess Marie Arnoštka of Eggenberg, nee Schwarzenberg. The plague column's nine-sculpture group is framed on three sides by a fountain. At the top of the pillar stands Virgin Mary, on the lower level are St Wenceslas, St Vitus, John the Evangelist and Judas Tadeas. The plinth of Judas bears the date 1716 and the signature of the sculptor Matěj Václav Jäckel.

Dates From - To

The sculpture, Belfry for Europe by Petr Fidrich, will be installed in the Seminary garden opposite Hotel Růže.

A belfry can easily be seen as a symbol of the archaic and historic qualities of Český Krumlov, being an archetypal architectural element, as well as an indellible feature of the town's towers. It represents a symbol of continuity between man and nature, so characteristic of this region. The belfry's design is inspired by the meander of the river Vltava, copying its 'omega' shaped flow through the town. An effective curve that is deservedly worked into the body of the sculpture.
