Více o festivalu

Classical Music Festival in the Werich Villa Garden; five unforgettable summer evenings of Classical Concerts in the Werich Villa garden on Prague’s Kampa island - the former home of the inimitable actor, philosopher and writer Jan Werich. Classical music at Werich’s will caress your ears and soothe your soul.

Music - I don´t understand it but I like it. I don't differentiate between classical and non-classical, just good and bad.

Jan Werich

About the Festival

The idea to organize Classical Concerts at Werich’s originated in 2020 from an idea to hold a “Concert for 100 people”. Its aim was to provide space for cultural engagement and musical enjoyment in line with the pandemic measures in place at the time. Needless to say the plan did not work out.

However, with the undimmed longing for culture and the kind cooperation of the Werich Villa, we are delighted to be able to offer you five beautiful classical music concerts in the summer of 2021. We hope you will join us to experience the rebirth of cultural and social life.

Your safety is our concern. In order to attend our concerts, you must be certified as fully vaccinated against Covid more than 14 days previously or provide proof of non-infectiousness with one of the following:
  • a negative PCR test within the previous 7 days

    confirmation of Covid infection within the last 180 days
    a negative antigen rapid self-test taken on the spot
  • a negative antigen test within the last 72 hours
  • confirmation of Covid infection within the last 180 days
  • a negative antigen rapid self-test taken on the spot
