The weekend of May 17 – 19 Výstavište will play host to THE finest car show in Europe. Since 2013, The Legendy Auto Festival has showcased the best examples of vintage and modern automobiles the whole family can experience, from roof to undercarriage. Organizers have planned a weekend of events that will delight even the most sophisticated of auto buffs, and with this year’s theme being “Made In the USA” you’ll get the chance to see part of the incredible collection of vintage American cars from the Veterans Car Museum in Nová Bystřice (muzeumveteranu.cz).
The event is huge (1000+ cars on display!) and gives festival goers a chance to get up close with personal some of the most beautiful cars ever to come off the line. The stunning Industrial Palace of the Výstavište exhibition grounds will showcase cars like the Tatra 77 (Pebble Beach winner 2014), Aero Minor Sport (Le Mans winner 1949), Jaguar E-Type, Citroen DS21 Pallas, Cadilllac 353 Vanden Plas Landaulette, and Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. For speed fans you’ll definitely want to visit the Shell sponsored Pavillon of Speed. You’ll gawk at the demons of racing from the oldest monoposts to the modern jewels of Formula One. Aside from the exhibition pavilions, private owners and clubs of every make and model you can imagine will have their prized possessions on display where you’ll get the chance to meet owners, talk about their passion, and snap some amazing pictures.
All this elegance and speed will definitely get you in the mood to take advantage of Legendy’s Pavillion of Experience. Try your hand at RC models, simulators, caravans, drones and other gadgets to get your mind racing and your blood pumping. Legendy even caters to the youngest of auto enthusiasts with a children’s area. Give your kids the chance to be amazed by beautiful cars, motorcycles, rescue cars and buses. And what kid doesn’t love trucks? Those will be there too! Along with fun attractions and competitions the children’s area will burn off energy like they’re mini Formula Ones. All this inspiration will then make you want to hit up the vendors on site like Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Coyote, Nokian tyres, and many, many more. It’s your chance to soup up your own vehicle, or even drive off in something new.
The list goes on with mind-blowing exhibitions from top motocross riders (led by the renowned FMX superstar Peter Pilat). Then, go on to get your swag signed by the superstars of racing. In the past drivers and riders like Stiga Blomqvista, Juh Hänninen, John Haugland, Scott Speed have been available for autographs, along with local champions Jan Černý, Petr Fulin, Břetislav and Tomáš Enge, Vojtěch Štajf, Václav Pech, and Petr Pilát and many others.
For any fan of all things auto related, the weekend is guaranteed to blow you away. Cityspy will be live streaming from the event, with our own surprises and giveaways to keep the motoring spirit alive through the summer. Tickets are available for individuals, families, and kids and will be by far the best koruna you’ve spent for an entire weekend of automotive entertainment.
