Photographer's Note

This timbered grange from Zelejov -- a small village near Jicin below the Krkonose Mountains -- is the last building of Kourim open-air museum I show you for the time being. All other exhibits were situated up sun during my visit and I have to come back in the morning some day.

The grange was built in Zelejov in 1660 as a part of larger homestead. It was moved to Kourim skansen in 1977. Its ground plan is polygonal, low timbering lies on a base wall made of sand-stone blocks and its steep roof is made of 5,000 straw thatches.

I'm posting a detail in full resolution into the WS for anyone who is interested.
