Special Easter tours were held at the old castle, during which not only the history of the castle, but also the Easter traditions that used to be held there, was told by the representative of the castellan, Marie Barbora Lodek. There was also a theater not only for children, in which the audience learned all about Easter traditions. “At the Bolfánek observation tower, an exhibition of a set of unique photographs by Josef Kubec Jr., which shows a group of poor boys during an Easter tour of the town in 1966, and an exhibition about the traditions of Easter and the Christian story of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ,” said the castellan’s representative.

The exhibition was created with the support of the National History Museum Dr. Hostaše in Klatovy and Chodska Museum in Domažlice. Visitors can see it at the observation tower until May 31.

Visitors who came to the Bolfánek observation tower over the long weekend certainly noticed the changes. The municipality of Chudenice has reconstructed the entrance area of ​​the tower for exhibition purposes and a new ticket office has been set up in the side apse. Outdoor furniture for the surroundings of the observation tower is now being prepared. “This year, however, we also have the first stage of building a new exhibition focused on the architectural and historical development of the former pilgrimage church of St. Wolfgang. It will be created in the premises of the second above-ground floor. The construction of this part of the exhibition was supported by the Pilsen region. Next year, we will build the main part of the exhibition dedicated to St. Wolfgang and the shaping of the sacred landscape of Chudenice. Spaces for a gallery will also be created on the lookout tower,” informed the castellan of the castle Ludvík Pouza, under whose administration the lookout tower also falls.

As part of this year’s anniversary of 1100 years since the birth of St. Wolfgang, a mass will be held on October 20 with the participation of the Bishop of Pilsen, Tomáš Holub, with the consecration of a new bell intended for the restored belfry, which will once again decorate the Bolfánk tower this year.
