A day when local museums, theatres and castles open side doors and enable exits to be wheelchair-accessible.
The town of Cesky Krumlov is a fascinating destination; a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1992, it is filled with spectacular Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture. It is a terrible shame then, that its cobbled streets and lack of accessibility make it extremely hard for people with disabilities to enjoy its beautiful surroundings. For this purpose the voluntary organisation Kiwanis Club have thoughtfully put together Day Without Barriers, a day when local museums, theatres and castles open side doors and enable exits to be wheelchair-accessible; other venues which do have disabled access throughout the year offer free entry. There are guided tours and cruises catering to the visually impaired as well as wheelchaired-visitors, and participating venues include the Egon Schiele Art Centre, the Fairytale House and the State Castle.
