The Cycle of Hradec Kralove Embankments

Embankment of Hradec Kralove.jpg Can You Remember It There at the Elbe? By rephrasing a line from a French chanson “T’En Souviens-Tu La Seine” sung by Anne Sylvestre we can find ourselves in Hradec Králové, where we can take a closer look at the upcoming summer months. There are only a few who would not find in themselves even a smidgen of admiration for French culture, wine, music and obviously Paris. In this marble white city it is simply not possible to ignore the embankments flanking the River Seine, where while listening to a French accordion one can browse through true gems of books at the stands of the local Bouquinistes.

Such places, perfect for romantic lazing and ideal for soothing and refreshing one’s mind and body can also be found in our city. Thanks to a variety of organisers and city residents the Elbe embankments are gradually developing into a rendezvous place for lovebirds, friends and culture enthusiasts. It is very exciting when in the summer months one can take a stroll admiring the sound of saxophones during the “Jazzmen’s Embankment”, take home his own portrait from the “Artists’ Embankment”, or enjoy a family picnic and so on.

The idea to enliven the embankments as a unique element of urban architecture by organising various cultural events was born here some years ago, starting with the traditional   “Embankment of Lovers of Steam Engines”, which has recently been joined by the “Embankment of Pottery and Glass” or the "Universities' Embankment". Let us go even further and add some other appealing events to the existing Hradec Králové Embankments series.

Various additional programmes in the form of workshops and workrooms will take place focusing on children, students and the general public. You can learn how to create an artifact, airmchair, lamp or handmade paper from waste and plastic bottles.

JAZZ EMBANKMENT WANDERING

Elbe Embankments – The Park at Novak’s Garages, Area in front of the Museum of Eastern Bohemia

We wish to invite you to the Jazzmen’s Embankment. As every year, you can enjoy the first Saturday in August in the company of musicians, who sold their soul to jazz. Summer jazz wandering titled “Jazz Embankments” is one of the events of the summer Hradec Králové embankments series included in Calendarium Regina. It offers wandering between jazz streams or, if you wish, a walk along the Elbe embankment between the stages to admire a style of music, which for two centuries has been enchanting musicians as well as their audience.
