a unique event, the name of which was created by combining the words chandelier and festival – this is Lustrefest. We want to start a new tradition in our town, the tradition of open air festival of lighting. Every year in June we want to remind our citizens, tourists and visitors of our city the important and extremely interesting glassmaking tradition.
This year we will symbolically start the tradition of Lustrefest with the so-called zero year. Coronavirus has restricted a number of events throughout the country, and many of them have alternatively taken place on the Internet. Therefore, we also decided to move the symbolic beginning of the event to the online space. The town of Kamenický Šenov, in cooperation with the Secondary School of Glassmaking in Kamenický Šenov and the company PRECIOSA-LIGHTING, will step-by-step present a rich, almost three-hundred-year-old glassmaking tradition. You will find out more on this website. Kamenický Šenov is a town with many historical, architectural, cultural and natural attractions many of which are still waiting to be discovered. For its inhabitants, however, it mainly remains a traditional town of glass.
I wish you a pleasant experience at the Lustrefest festival, a beautiful late spring spent in Kamenický Šenov and life full of joy and success.
Petr David, deputy mayor
