Kroj - local costumes

I'm often asked how kroj (Czech/Moravian/Silesian costume) looked like in different regions of the Czech Republic. I got a link to very interesting booklet published in 1885 showing both male and female krojs from different locations. There are not too many of them but I thought you would like to see them.

Name of the area is on top of the picture - in these cases Pilsen area.

The booklet is available online in the Moravian Regional Library.

  1. I’ve learned so much from you. Many thanks! My ancestors were German Bohemian. I was wondering in you know of a publication like this for their traditional costumes? My ancestors were from western Bohemia (Eger now Cheb, Graslitz now Kraslice) and northwestern Bohemia (Merzlitz now Mrzlice and Salesel now Dolni Zalezly).
