Dvorana and the Folk Arts Center of New England are pleased to invite you on a cultural tour into the heart of Europe. Together we will travel through Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

During your travels with us you will enjoy visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites and historical towns, meet people who practice traditional folk crafts and take hikes in beautiful surroundings. Together we will explore Prague, meet folk dancers, and learn first-hand about different aspects of local folklore.

This tour is organized by Dvorana for the Folk Arts Center of New England with whom we have collaborated many times over the years. Jan Pumpr with Dvorana and Marcie Van Cleave, FAC’s Executive Director, are coordinators for this tour. Jan is a native Prague resident, and Marcie has a lot of experience with Czech Republic from frequent ​tours and visits.

This year we have scheduled the tour earlier than usual. If you attend our April tour you will have a chance to join in the Easter holidays in Western Slovakia, where you will be shown and participate in both the holiday’s Christian customs, as well as also some of the ancient traditions that come from the pagan era.

We look forward to welcoming you to Central Europe!
