Our Working Holidays at Červený Dvůr
We held two one-week working holidays at Červený Dvůr in South Bohemia. The team has mainly been engaged in painting the exterior and interior of the Mauricovna, which has been one of our projects for several years.
The appearance of the Maurocovna has been transformed with a coat of yellow paint. While we were working an elderly lady visiting from Germany told us that she had been born in the Mauricovna before the Second World War! She confirmed that the colour was correct.
The historic estate in South Bohemia was once the summer residence of the Schwarzenberg family and is now a sanatorium. This project is dear to the hearts of many of our members and supporters and we have provided labour and funding for it over several years.
