Open garden weekend

We want to raise people's awareness of garden art, garden architecture, parks, gardens and public spaces. We want to introduce individual objects with their stories and secrets and bring people to the experience of learning. And all across the V4 countries.

 Open Gardens Weekend

The event originated in Great Britain (Open Garden & Squares Weekend), in 1998. It takes place during the second weekend in June. It opens normally closed gardens and gives to others a new dimension to knowledge and innovative experiences. The project is popular all over Europe and becomes one of the main contributions to spread further education about jewels of a garden art. In the Czech Republic involves to "Open gardens weekend" not only normally inaccessible gardens, but also parks and public spaces. During those two days, we try to present gardens to the public in a different – interesting way. Through the guiding program, whose a main task is to revive an interest of people in areas that are primarily intended for the public. The focus is on guided tours, which are accompanied by other cultural program. In 2013 attended one hundred objects across the whole Czech Republic. The event was arranged in order of this methodology the second
time and was adapted and developed for the Czech Republic.
