Pirkstein Castle

In 2015, I rented Pirkstein Castle from the Catholic Church. The place had served as a parish office for the last 300 years. I bought goats there and spent half of our time at the castle and half at the Lucerna Rooftop. Concerts have been held at Pirkstein (including Iva Bittová, Buta, Vladimír Václavek, Oldřich Janota ...). I also organise poetry festivities here with the Czech poet Petr Hruška, including events marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Walt Whitman and the 50th anniversary of the death of Jack Kerouac. The Tomáš Jamník Academy of Chamber Music organises regular classical music concerts here as well. Many boy scouts and girl scouts, various non-profits, theatre companies, and bands have spent the night in the castle.

The tower has old bells, which we always ring every Sunday at noon.
