  • Summary

Crystal, another local specialty, has been produced in the Bohemian countryside since the 14th century - many villages are still dotted with tiny glass factories. Quality remains extremely high and excellent pieces are readily available for far less than you´d pay back home.

Visit the Glass Factories and see the art of manufacturing crystal

The Ruckl Crystal glassworks in Nizbor manufactures an extensive range of cut 24% leaded crystal in a wide variety of decorations from the simple to extremely complex and laborious decorations, with gilt, hand painting and sandblasting. The company was chosen for the production and supply of official state gifts due to the very high quality of its products and services.

It is possible to walk around the firm´s glassworks where you can see all stages of how the glass is made.

We offer tours with a professional explanation of the operations for both individuals and groups. During the excursion the visitors will get to know the individual stages of producing glass crystal by hand, i. e. the furnaces, processing, designing and polishing.

The excursions take roughly 45 minutes. At the end of the tour you can visit the firm´s shop, which is in the grounds of the glassworks. Are you looking to buy such beautiful crystals in the factory, enjoying amazing discounts? Don´t hesitate.
