Project description

The aim of the project is to restore the cultural heritage - the northern wing of the Baroque mansion, in order to provide visitors with currently unused space and offer activities and services in the historic interior for the local community. The north wing of the manor will get its original look and new creative, relaxing, and representative premises. The artistic creation of the puppet theater and the handicraft production of the Kyjatic wooden toy will aim to educate young puppeteers and carvers, to present their important role and the production process to visitors of all ages, especially for children and young people. The project also includes the opening of the "Castanea" patisserie. It offers traditional regional confectionery made from chestnuts from the castle and town chestnut trees. It will also serve as a cultural space with social facilities for various purposes and activities, such as discussions, concerts, meetings, lectures, exhibition openings, the sale of works of art, and a public reading of books.
