Czech Fairytale Summer - Childhood in the time of Charles IV. 

Throughout the month on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays you can enjoy knight tournaments, skills and various skits. The Czech Fairytale Summer runs at Loučeň Castle until Saturday 26 August.

A time machine will take us back to the time of the young King Charles to the year 700. Young Charles returns home after his first knightly victories. Can you help him restore peace and order to the Bohemian Kingdom?
