In recent days, he visited the quarry in Mariánská skála, the Račí skála in Krásné Březn, the Vaňovský waterfall, but he also appeared in the city center near the museum or polyclinic. In the first half of September, he is planning a cruise on the Elbe and will also visit other places.

“When we were writing the scripts, we were a little worried if she wasn’t Vinneta for the current generation. But the current discussion in Germany, where films are being pulled from television and books from bookstores because of the dispute over whether or not May’s work is laden with contemporary racism, has shown that he still has an important place in German and Czech culture,” noted the head of the historical department Museums of the city of Ústí nad Labem and co-author of the scenarios Martin Krsek.

The “Treasure on the Silver Elbe” project, which reveals the beauty and extraordinary values ​​of the ecosystems of the Elbe valley, has succeeded in the program “Environment, Ecosystems and Climate Change”, a call of the Reine Norwegian Funds.

Norwegian funds contribute to reducing economic and social differences in the European Economic Area and strengthen bilateral relations between Norway and the Czech Republic. The film represents only a part of the whole project.

Until 2023, the museum will carry out a set of activities ranging from local history excursions around Ústí nad Labem, through a museum exhibition to educational programs for schoolchildren in the museum and in nature.
