The Southern Bohemian province capital České Budejovice (Budweis) is world-wide known for its famous and marvellous beer. But this city offers much more: A medieval city centre with a cosy ambience, in many parts style fully reconstructed a lively university town and good situated between Linz, Munich and Prague.

Musical traditions are not only carefully maintained at the universities - in České Budejovice you can find some of the best youth choirs of the country. The organ player and composer Adam Vaclav Michna (17th century) was born in a nearby village with the name Otradovic. His most known composition is the Missa Sancti Venceslai.

Concert places are in Budweis and in Český Krumlov, an UNESCO World Heritage with a large castle and an old town along the river. After spending the day in this medieval town, the choirs will perform their final concert in the castle in the former winter riding school of the castle, where concerts are celebrated all over the year

Guided tours in Budweis and Krumlov are planned as well as a farewell dinner with all choirs to get international contacts. Altogether it is an experience-rich weekend in one of the most beautiful regions of the Czech Republic.
