Glass and crystal have been made in the Czech lands for the last 800 years. The industry is based on a well-prevalent craft ability and technical knowledge which were past over from generation to generation. The result is pieces of crystal glass which are admired by many people all over the world.
The high level of quality of Czech glass industry is based on tradition, skills and experiences of the glass makers who are being educated in specialized glass schools that are unique of their type.
