Venue Bojiště

The area is named after the fierce battle in the Prussian-Austrian war that took place here on June 27, 1866. There is no more fighting here today. On the contrary, it is a place of culture, entertainment and good fun. During the year, especially in summer months, many concerts, performances and festivals are organized here. Movies screened in the open air have a wonderful atmosphere, not only in summer but also in winter.
