Zubrnice, Czech Republic

The village of Zubrnice, our first stop on the drive from Dresden to Prague, is an open-air museum of vernacular buildings, some brought from goodly distances to save them from demolition, along with tools, fitments, etc. to show something about how people once lived here. We had a charming 16-year-old guide who bicycles in from 3 kilometers away to show people around.

Drying racks and drying chimney

Window sill, with tracks cut to drain any rain that came in into a tank below.

Old kitchen, where we were served plum pastries and chicory from an original wood-fired tile oven:
