Working Holiday: Restoration at Červený Dvůr, 21 to 28 May 2022/ 28 May to 4 June 2022
Červený Dvůr is a historic estate that was once the summer residence of the Schwarzenberg family and is now a sanatorium. In 2022, participants will be helping to complete work on the two gatehouses, working on the facade, the plaster and the final coat. During the week there will be the opportunity to visit some of the region’s houses and castles. No prior skills are required, although participants will need to have a good level of fitness. A very limited number of places are still available.
