Festivals

A day spent at Nelahozeves Castle brings a lifetime of memories

A quick 30-minute train ride from Prague’s Masaryk train station transports happy visitors far from the congested, tourist laden streets of Prague to the charming and historic renaissance splendor of the Lobkowicz country estate.

Svět kostiček® Temporary Exhibition

12 May – 7 October 2018

The unique double exhibition of LEGO® and Seva® bricksets is an interesting new event among our family festivals. The castle cellar will be divided into LEGO® and Seva® sections. The exhibition will be open every weekend. To participate during the week (Tue – Fri), please book in advance by calling tel. 315 709 111.

The exhibition will offer a selection of LEGO® factory sets designed by leading Czech architects, sets from the LEGO® Friends Heartlake City series, LEGO® City sets complete with mechanical train sets and a carousel, a complete edition of the Model Team vehicles,  and train sets and locomotives by Peesko®.  Most importantly, the exhibition will showcase the unique, world-class designs by several Czech architects from different corners of the Czech Republic. Worth mentioning, for example, is the LEGO® village of Polanka nad Odrou and its music festival Rock-Fest from the imagination of Czech architect Daniel Soviar from the same village, and the Elf World diorama of the Ostravan story of Jiri Grigor on the  LEGO®  programme Legends of Chima. The Czech toy company SEVA®  presents Svět kostiček® as a patriotic destination that presents a range of factory sets from other companies, but also its own work, which includes life-sized animals, games and other interesting models. The exhibition will also feature a large children’s playroom with LEGO® bricks and Seva® cubes.

The exhibition will start with Kostičkofest, which is described below:
