The "Iron Curtain" fell and East Bavaria had an open border to its neighbour, the Czech Republic. Lots of opportunities have arisen in the last few decades since the border was opened up: a mutual exchange of cultural ideas also began. Cultural information from the two countries became increasingly important and the newly created Centrum Bavaria Bohemia (CeBB) in Schönsee brought it all together for both regions.
Numerous events are offered at the CeBB directly, ranging from talks and exhibitions to workshops. A database on the internet lists all of the cultural events in the region on both sides of the border.
