The Czech Embassy’s open house is a part of the EU Open House, an annual event during which the Delegation of the European Union to the United States and the Embassies of 28 EU Member States to the United States offer a rare look inside their Embassies and provide a unique opportunity to experience each country’s cultural heritage and national traditions. The open house attracts thousands of curious visitors each year. Read more about the event and free shuttle transportation at the EU Delegation's website.

Avoid any lines and spend hours inside the Czech Embassy as well as the architecturally stunning Ambassador’s residence, both located on several spacious acres of grassy meadows in the beautiful Rock Creek Park. Plenty of free parking available.
