Explore the castle and travel from the attic to the cellar!

Set off to discover the technical conveniences of the attic then walk the stairs down to the historical kitchen

and finally look through the mysterious cellar. You will not be overloaded by data but will be given a chance to interact and find out a lot of interesting information about this special castle area. Working on the supplied worksheet, you may complete a small crossword, hammering a piece of wood in the attic you may leave your mark the same way like the carpenters used to do.

In our lovely kitchen where in the past they once prepared the menu for the first Czechoslovak president Thomas G. Masaryk, you can try to smell and identify the ingredient used for cooking 100 years ago and find more about the recipes of the time.

In the cellar where a secret passage leading to Nove Mesto underground system starts, you can see and hear some local legends and may even experience a face to face encounter of the castle ghost…
