Conclusions (incl. output, analysis of benefits) Kiwanis klub Krumlov started to organise the Day Without Barriers 7 years ago. On this day they invite people with different types of disability to take part in a rich program in the city; in 2010 the programme offered guided tours, visits of the castle and museums, famous baroque theatre, sightseeing from the rafts on river, many accompanying actions like concerts, street art and other cultural events.

In the budget, the costs of some expensive beneficial concerts are not included, a lot of work is provided by volunteering. Many partners of the action (State castle, parking place, museum etc) provide their services free of charge or for a reduced fee.

This action enables people with disabilities to enjoy the places that are usually difficult to access, provides the possibility for different groups of people to meet and make better access to the historic places.
