Regardless of whether you cross the border of the Czech Republic from the West, South, North or East, you enter different regions of folklore traditions. It has become popular to look at works of art, historical artefacts picture galleries sculptures
and handcraft products as well as classical music theatre and ballet in silence and free of any external disturbances. Likewise, it has become popular to watch also the folklore performed on stage
There is the platform separating us from the stage. However, in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia, you can become a part of the spectacle. The residues of folklore traditions have remained so deeply rooted that people continue pursuing them on their own impulse both for themselves and their guests. The only decision for you is to pick the right region at the right time,
since folklore has been alive in the Czech Republic and its position in the European context is unique.
You have to leave the motorways and the main roads and to enter village centres. You have to be lucky to pick the right time and place when the village lives its unique life.
The live experience of the spontaneous folklore performance a part of which the spectator can easily become, is the key to understanding folklore creativity. An overall view of folklore art can be seen at folk festivals and other events and is well documented in numerous folklore museums
. The best musical and singing productions are available on the records of the outstanding follclore groups. These groups have a long-standing tradition in the renowned Czech, Moravian and Silesian folk history
