The Night of Churches
- 9. 6. 2017
On June 9th 2017 many churches in Prague will stay open late for public and they will offer a rich cultural program.
Night-time pilgrims will have an unprecedented experience, and free of charge. Visitors can already choose from a wide range of programme activities. They will have the opportunity to explore towers, vestries, chapels, cloisters, fraters and Elysian gardens. The Night of Churches is a project which gives the general public the chance to visit churches and chapels and become acquainted, not only with their cultural significance, but also in getting to know Christianity through music, art, personal encounters and experience. Visitors can look forward to guided tours of the parts of churches that people don’t usually see, tours of bell-towers and crypts, children’s events, creative competitions, Bible-readings, organ concerts and other musical events, visual performances, puppet shows, charity presentations, book-readings, night-time sermons and prayers.
