↓ Look into the history of the house ↓

Faber, the Latin word for blacksmith, is a craftsman, which is inherently connected with the house Nr. 38, a house, which is one of the oldest in Český Krumlov.
Janek, the first blacksmith sounded the anvil in the house in the late 15th century. He ran his craft until 1502, when he died. He left the house to his wife Dorothy, who together with her father Jan, kept the family craft  tradition and continued with the smithy. During the 16th century, the house changed its owners several times, but the anvil still sounded in the smithy. The tradition continued until 1622, when the plumber Kašpar bought the house, he became the first owner, who wasn´t a blacksmith. Since then the profession carried out in the house changed a few times – strapmaker or butcher.

Traces of the blacksmith craftsmanship survived in the house until today in the form of forged railings and other forged components in the interior.

Experience the unforgettable atmosphere of the blacksmith Janek´s house .
