We prepared a special culture tour for you! Picturesque landscape of the Pilsen Region has been always decorated not only by the silhouettes of the Gothic castles but also by a number of Baroque sights – churches, chapels, chateaus, farm yards and Marian columns. The most attractive places are the monumental church areas – the cloisters in Chotěšov, Kladruby, Plasy and the provost premises in Mariánská Týnice created by masters of the Baroque art.
The art pieces created by J. B. Santini-Aichl show a significant clerical symbolism. The unique example of the Baroque Gothic style is the Church of Assumption of Virgin Mary in Kladruby. In the former Cistercian cloister premises in Plasy you will be utterly amazed by Santini’s bravery as he designed and built the entire area of the cloister in a fenland and therefore the construction is positioned on more than 5000 oak pillars. One of the most beautiful buildings devoted to Virgin Mary is the Church of Annunciation of Virgin Mary and the provost area in Mariánská Týnice. In year 2016 the Centre of Baroque was opened there.
Visit to any of the Baroque gems within the Pilsen Region will be even more impressive if you connect it with some of the cultural events which are arranged there during the summer months. The last year’s successful project called Nine Weeks of Baroque was organized in connection to the title Pilsen - European Capital of Culture 2015 and for this year it is followed by the Summer Baroque Festival. Until the end of august the cultural programme will be prepared for 10 locations within West Bohemia. The events will bring classical music, theatre performances, parades, dance, traditional gastronomy, presentation of Baroque aromas and fashion and also illumination of the Baroque sights.
