Was that carving on a tree still rooted in the ground or brought in to the site? You really had some nice architecture to visit on your latest excursion. I'm so happy that your knee must have recovered fully in order to visit so many sites. And evidently, the new camera is working well too!

Holidays in Central Bohemia
First day - Kladruby stud farm
In 1563 the Emperor Maxmillian II of Habsburg founded a stud farm on this estate and on 6 March 1579 his successor, Emperor Rudolph II of Habsburg granted it a charter as the Imperial Court Stud Farm. The stud farm had specialised in breeding ceremonial carriage horses of the gala carrossier type solely to satisfy the demand of the Imperial Court. At present, horses from Kladruby stud farm are used at the Danish and the Swedish Royal Courts. The pictures show shots from stables, historical exposures and pastures.

Beautiful. I can smell the horses and the hay. Interesting history.

The Slavonic Epic is a truly monumental work that celebrates Slavic reciprocity. I just feel that the reciprocity has disappeared today. This is really a shame. Today, there is a lawsuit, there is still no place where it should be permanently exposed. I feel like it's just money.

The next day we walked through Prague. We took the cable car to Petřín Hill, then we walked three hundred steps to the top of the lookout towers. The observation tower was built two years (1891) after the Eifel Tower in Paris and is five times smaller. I made some photos and we went to see the castle (Old Castle, Cathedral, St. George's Basilica, Golden Lane). It was a nice weather, but too warm and so we returned to accommodation in the city of Kolín.
