Exposition

Babiččino údolí: („the gran mother valley“)

A path leads in 20 mn from Ratiborice to this valley. The czech writer Bozena Nemcova spent her childhood there, and the novel „Gran mother“ is drawn from this place. Also the valley became a symbol in the czech culture. Even without knowing this culture, it is obvious that the place, with the brook, the wipping willows, wooden house, meadows, beehives, flowers, and the peace, is the answer to the question: what does „bucolic“ mean ?
