Travels in the North – Norway

What kind of impression did Norway leave on the Czech travellers to the North at the beginning and in the first part 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, Rudolf Těsnohlídek, Václav Fiala and other adventurers through a fabulous country of fjords and waterfalls. Maybe you will find out how little Norway has changed over time.

Reading from old Czech travelogues by the actor Martin Severýn and Michal Švec from The Scandinavian House will be accompanied by a presentation of both historical and contemporary photographs.

In Czech.
