Budget weekend in Prague

Yes, it sounds corny, but Prague is a fairy tale. And there are people who love her the most. Despite Paris, Amsterdam or Rome. And how to describe this magic?

The capital of the Czech Republic is incredibly fascinating in winter. We advise you to visit it precisely during Advent, when ancient narrow streets are shrouded in garlands, the aromas of the sweet tealotnik and the whole city is filled with incredible energy.

Prague will require several days of your attention. And sleepless nights! And that will not be enough. Of course, wherever you look, architectural wonders and little secrets are everywhere. Continue reading

While getting to the threshold, the song “Smerekova hut on cool mountains” sounds in my thoughts. And although the hut is not Smerekova, and the mountain is not too steep, this song comes to the moment, because that’s how lemons come to this museum: like a parent’s hut. Like in his childhood – where there was a similar hut in a row covered with straw, where it smelled of smoke and mother’s food …

A Hut That Smells Of Childhood

Lemkovskaya manor- This hut was built in 1902, – the current mistress (you can not name otherwise) of this hut meets Mrs. Lyuba Pekar, the head of the Lemkovskaya manor ethnographic museum. – That’s what it says on the central beam. Zarichevsky landlord Kovach came here for a housewarming party with his family after Veil – then the custom ordered to move to a new hut precisely in the autumn period: when it is full in the barn and bins, the order in the yard and garden.
