The Czech Embassy will host a night of scares and thrills, Czech Legends and Mythical Creatures, including a fright walk for children on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at 6:30 pm.
Ever heard of the Bogeyman, Will-o'-the-wisp, Water Goblin, Melusine, or the Midday Lady? Join us for a glimpse into Czech fairytales and folklore.
An introduction to Czech mythical creatures will be followed by a fright walk, intended for children’s amusement, through the haunted forest upon the grounds of the Czech Embassy. Pondering Czech legends, adults will enjoy understanding the origins and explanations behind the most notorious, intriguing, and a few lovable, fictitious yet legendary sprites, spirits, and ghosts.
This is a children’s event, as part of the Mutual Inspirations Festival 2021 – Vera Caslavska, to honor the athlete’s Czech heritage and her love for her children.
