Letní shakespearovské slavnosti
The Summer Shakespeare Festival—the showcase of theatre productions performed in the courtyard of the Burgrave Palace at the Prague Castle— was originally initiated by President VÁCLAV HAVEL. This original theatre project of Shakespearean plays will be presented under the open sky with the ancient backdrops of CASTLES of PRAGUE, BRNO and BRATISLAVA. This festival has become a major cultural event in the Czech Republic that has long since surpassed its significance as a mere summer showcase of theatre.
