A Summer full of Culture in Luhacovice in the Czech Republic

The spa season is in full swing in Luhacovice in the Czech Republic, and as in many other health and well-being destinations, culture plays a big part.

The Janacek festival has just come to a successful conclusion. The festival celebrates the life and music of the famous Czech composer, Leos Janacek, and is held annually on his birthday. Janacek, a frequent visitor to Luhacovice around the turn of the       19th century, was inspired here to write his famous opera “Fate.”
Luhacovice is also offering free tours of one of the most well-known religious sites in the region, the Church of our Holy Family. The Year of Czech Music on the Silver Screen is another event being held this summer at the local cinema, where filmed concerts, operas and musicals can be seen. And finally, of course, live concerts and theater performances are held regularly in various venues around the spa town.
