A Visit of a Czech Castle

Litomysl is a small town in Czechia. The main attraction of the city is “sgraffito”. Not a spelling mistake, but an old technique in which two different colored plasters are applied to each other and the motifs are scratched into it. Above the town sits the castle, which is also covered with sgraffiti all over. Even the chimneys adorn sgraffito motifs. The castle theater with the original stage decoration has been preserved. The tables in the rooms are set with Meissen porcelain and Czech glass.

  1. What a beautiful castle, Traudel! Is it Renaissance (because of the pillars and arches)? Your captures are stunning – love the black and white artwork and wonder which war it refers to… and the hall with the pillars and the beams on the ceiling – very impressive. Many thanks for sharing it with us at All Seasons. My son was in Prague for Christmas, it seems these countries draw more tourism lately?
