Czech Legends and Mythical Creatures

The Czech Embassy will host an evening of Czech Legends and Mythical Creatures for young children on October 17, 2023. (Book a session!) 

Ever heard of the Bogeyman, the Forest Demon, Water Goblin, Rusalka, or the Noonday Witch? Join us for a glimpse into Czech fairytales and folklore. An introduction to Czech mythical creatures will be followed by a walk, intended for children’s amusement, through the mythical 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.
