IN THE FIELD II.

Another field day with Arts Management students

Story by Filip Prochazka May 7th, 2016

Chcebuz Village

In the beginning of May another Arts Management field trip took place (see the first AM field trip here). This time with a focus on creating regional tourism policies and strategies.

The first stop was Chcebuz village, north of Prague. For its well-preserved historic folk architecture, the village served as a film location for the Lidice movie.

From behind the Church of St. Peter and Paul, the town oversees a junction of the two largest Czech rivers - Labe (far left) and Vltava. The stream on the right is a 19th century cut-off channel.

Wine Tasting

The region is known for growing wine on the surrounding hills and the wine-making tradition traces back to the medieval times. We experienced the delicious wines at the most recognized local producer, the Bettina Lobkowicz winery.
