The Scandinavian House and the Municipal Library in Prague invite you to a reading from old Czech travelogues – Travels in the North V: Sweden.
What kind of impression did Sweden leave on the Czech travellers to the North in the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century? What places did they visit and what did they think about the natives and their traditions? Come and set out with us in the footsteps of Karel Čapek, Václav Fiala, Josef Štolba and other adventurers through beautiful Sweden, explore well-known places as well as the country’s secluded corners and you will see with your own eyes how much or how little Sweden changed over time.
Reading will be accompanied by a presentation of both historical and contemporary photographs.
