Night of Churches – This Friday in Brno
Brno Museum Night was a hot topic in the city a few weeks ago. People enjoyed it at the fullest and for a single night all museums and art galleries where more lively than ever. Now, Night of Churches is coming to Brno to point out the beauty of the city’s churches and remind people the importance of spiritual life.
Night-time pilgrims will have the unique chance to learn what churches have to offer; about their history, stunning architecture, and art. They will have the opportunity to enter the places that are normally hidden to public eye. Musical and theatrical performances will enhance the atmosphere and visitors can get active at various workshops. Visitors can look forward to guided tours, bell-towers and crypts exploration, children’s events, creative workshops, Bible-readings, organ concerts and choirs, visual performances, charity presentations, night-time sermons, and prayers.
