2024 The Year of Czech Music


If you’re a music lover planning a trip to Czechia this year, you couldn’t have chosen a better time to go. 2024 celebrates The Year of Czech Music and a top programme of concerts and events is sure to be in tune with your travel plans.


The Year of Czech music celebrations commemorate the finest Czech composers and some of the best classical pieces ever written. The biggest tributes of the programme will be paid to Bedřich Smetana – his anniversary will be centred around a special project, Smetana 200 with a string of performances celebrating the great Czech composer.

2024’s celebrations stretch beyond the classical world – for the first time, this year, other genres such as folk and jazz will also step into the spotlight.


It is expected the Smetana anniversary will attract more visitors to Litomyšl this year.


Go on a magical musical tour of the Czech Republic during the 2024 Year of Czech Music and discover the rich tapestry of Czech’s musical identity all year, from classical compositions to contemporary beats plus Bedřich Smetana’s 200th Anniversary. It’ll be music to your ears!
