Arts Management is my academic study program at the University of Economics in Prague. Excursions of various kinds are held every semester to enhance studied subjects with deeper practical knowledge and also to allow students personal interactions within related fields.
Though unintended, the first stop occurred somewhere in between Czech and Moravian fields upon drivers (not particularly successful) turn over a side-road ditch. However, due to a coincidental presence of local fire department units, rescue mission was quickly under way and what first seemed as an unfortunate end of our trip quickly turned into a surprisingly exciting manifest of honest solidarity and will to help.
Before we could text our families and friends of the ongoing excitement, fire department crane showed up. Than the actual spectacle started…
Many thanks to the remarkable regional fire department, thanks to whom we were able to continue our excursion!
Nesčetné díky Hasičskému záchrannému sboru kraje Vysočina, díky němuž jsme mohli pokračovat v naší exkurzi!
Actual first stop. Exquisitely well-preserved medieval castle with unique elements of gothic fortification architecture.
Interiors are decently furbished with fragments of original furniture, period replicas and appropriate props to illustrate particular eras.
The tradition of pattern printing and subsequently dyeing fabric in dark indigo blue is passed from generation to generation in the Danzinger family. The workshop was awarded the Rural Crafts Tradition Keeper title by Czech Ministry of Culture for maintaining the original techniques and tools.
Pattern printing with Mr. Danzinger.
On behalf of all attendees, the final thanks go to our mentors for constantly enriching our studies with special excitements (this time even with one unintended).
Thanks for seeing this story…
