Christmas joy

Like last year, the visitors of the castle Svijany can take up the Christmas atmosphere there. The first Advent Sunday, the lightening of the Christmas tree including a rich program is going to take place in the courtyard, and the visitors are going to be served a brewery elixir healing all the afflictions called the Svijany Ancestor. The newly restored organ from the 18th century is going to chime under the hands of an important Czech organ master Václav Uhlíř in the castle chapel at 5 p.m. “The restoration of the orphan took several months and we are looking forward to their chiming in the chapel for the first time. The complete expensive restoration and renovation for about 750 thousand CZK was financed by the Brewery Svijany, which is the owner of the castle”, said Mr. Stejskal.

The second Advent Sunday is mainly dedicated to children, for which the puppet company Ještěd from Český Dub has prepared the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. On the penultimate Advent Sunday, there is going to a grow a Christmas market full of local products, traditional Christmas presents and symbols, and the carps are going to be sold as well, in the churchyard. The evening is going to end with a concert in the castle chapel. This time the visitors can enjoy the string band Rubin Quartet.

The final Christmas concert – singing of the Christmas carols with the soloist of the National Theatre Opera Mr. Luděk Vele and the notional parting of the castle is going to take place on Wednesday, the 20th December in the castle chapel. The Castle Svijany is going to greet the New Year with the Three Kings concert of the Amadeus Trio subtitled “serious music not seriously”.
