As time goes, every man is getting older and has more experiences which make him a patriot - a man who loves his friends, family and the country he lives in. But all these feelings are connected with something what was for our ancestors absolutely natural: it is faith that supports our spirit. And this is just one of the main ideas of The Museum of Carriages which is addressed to each one of the younger or older generation who cross the treshold of the museum and find themselves on a land which is shed by sweat of our ancestors. In a place where there is no space for badness and commerce of today‘s, often empty, life.

Time spent in the museum makes you think about things you maybe have never thought. That time will be very special. In the museum you will see a combination of the artisanal craftsmanship of our ancestors with the spirit which is visible in every carriage. You will also see a splendid combination of wonderful carriages which served a man in the most cheerful moments of life but also those that are selected for the last journey of life. This is a unique collection which wakes your feelings up and strengthen your mind and spirit for other ways of your life.

Come explore the work of our ancestors and visit the exhibition of historical carriages in Čechy pod Kosířem and support this great work!
