After visiting some castles and chateaus, our next goal was to see the Czech countryside.
Our first stop was the former cottage of the greatest Czech female writer, Božena Němcová. This place is called “Grandma’s Valley,” and is presently an open-air museum. It was the setting for Nemcova’s famous novel, “Babicka,” (grandmother) which is currently a required reading in Czech schools.
For one who has a creative mind, I wouldn’t wonder why she got so inspired to write her novel. The valley itself is awe-inspiring.

On that same day, we also visited one of our favorite places in Czech - Adršpach.
My husband and I were also very fortunate to have had this chance to travel with both our parents. Although it was a long hike, they enjoyed it as much as we did.
