The year 2015 marked the 700th anniversary of the issuance of the charter of the Czech King John of Luxembourg, in which he confirmed with his signature and seal the contract for the artificial drainage of the mines for the extraction of silver ores near Jihlava. Traces of the mining embankment are still visible in the landscape today.

Lecturers for the workshop are Mgr. Olga Žampová, director of the organization Slavonic Renaissance, a non-profit society and Ing. Ladislav Ptáček, Chairman of the Association for the Interpretation of Local Heritage of the Czech Republic and the Association of Rural Tourism.

"There are many extraordinary things and stories all around, you just have to look carefully. How do we tell others about them so that they enjoy it?" This is the common idea of the three blocks of the seminar.

For completing all three courses, participants will receive a certificate issued by the Association for the Interpretation of Local Heritage of the Czech Republic.
