Romance is a Knight in Shining Armor
I am so bummed that I won't be able to attend this event. Then again, how would I choose just one castle or chateau?
On August 27th, several castles and chateaus throughout the Czech Republic will open their doors at night for Hradozámecká noc. AT NIGHT. Meaning candlelight and classical music and knights in shining armor.
One of the chataeus participating is Duchcov, where the stud Giacomo Casanova worked as a librarian in the late 1700's. Perhaps, on this night his spirit will roam the building flirting with women as they pass by. Will you be so lucky?

Another participant is the baroque castle Žleby, which is particularly romantic in appearance.
I can picture it... candle lit rooms, music playing softly in the background, the click-clap of horse hooves as they pass by on the cobble-stoned paths, and the knights. Oh, the knights...
