Photographer's Note

I visited the open-air museum of folk architecture (skansen) in Kourim today. Kourim is located about 40Km east of Prague and it is one of the oldest Czech towns. I hope I'll show you all its monuments some day, but today I had time for the skansen only.

Kourimsky skansen was established in 1972 to save valuable monuments of folk architecture threatened by modern urban development. Since then it collected about a dozen rural buildings transferred here from all over Bohemia. The buildings contain traditional furniture and furnishings, tools, decorations and clothing. A variety of folk events are presented here all the year.

I'll show you the nicest houses in the next couple of days.
