and who has been bad.
The good ones, time allowing, can even try devil's forging as well.
In the back-house, there is traditional food tasting ($)

Welcome to the Nove Hrady Smithy
Walking from the historic center of Nove Hrady to the 13th century castle, you will find the Nove Hrady Smithy on your right hand side. The building is protected as cultural heritage, but its workshop is still active.
We provide commented informal tours through the smithy and the blacksmith house and barn. In our giftshop, we sell forged items, jewelery and other gifts.
