Accept the invitation to a small walk in one Central Bohemian village, which is inherently associated with the name of the phenomenal painter and the writer Josef Lada. It is the author's hometown of Hrusice, which offers a memorial to Josef Lada and his daughter Alena with a museum, a late Romanesque church from the beginning of the 13th century, a pub where the famous battle and dance took place, as well as many other memorable places or architectural treasures.

Important business and transportation junction, a modern and dynamic city, but also a place full of history - this is Benešov, from Prague distant less than fifty kilometres.
The town situated on both banks of the Sázava River is known for its romantic nature trails, the most famous of which is the Posázavská. The romantic character of the landscape is enhanced by the slopes above the river bed and on one of the hills the gem of the Sázava Monastery. The Sázava region also became a place for many glass factories, as crystalline limestone was mined here. One of the resurrected glassworks is Huť František.
The Central Bohemian Region abounds in a number of interesting and beautiful places. One of them is the village of Soběhrdy, where a unique family park with animals and attractions is located.
Today we set out for the Sázava River, which is considered the Golden River. Not only the color of the water but also the fact connected with gold mining in Jílové u Prahy contributed to this name.
Last week we visited the beautiful town of Velké Popovice, just a few kilometers southeast of Prague, where we learned not only history but also local monuments and natural scenery. However, we deliberately omitted one landmark that is inextricably linked to the town. Perhaps you already know that the talk is about the local famous brewery, which you can visit with us now.
For the next few weeks will guide you through the micro-region located between Prague and the Sázava River. A total of 24 municipalities joined in 2000 to create a fairy-tale area whose name is named after one of the greatest personalities of Czech culture - the painter and writer Josef Lada.
The castle dubbed often Hlaska thanks to its preserved tower, sits above the Senohraby outdoor swimming pool. Its founding dates back to the end of the 13th century. It used to be a residence of the Lords of Zlenice, an important noble family in the Sazava region.
We have already visited Kamenice in Central Bohemia. It was on the occasion of a visit to Stirin Chateau. There are however two chateaus in Kamenice. The other has the same name as the town – Kamenice.
Those who does not want to live in Prague but does not want to be too far away from Prague usually choose Ricany. Well, Ricany are not only a synonym for an ideal address off Prague. The city offers many things. It is a place connected to history and tradition.
If you take one of famous images from painter and writer Lada and walk around Hrusice, you would recognize it only in hints. Although the reality of everyday life looks somewhat different from precise pictures, Lada´s sensitive and wonderland soul lives in a Hrusice till now. No doubt about it.
HOTEL Chateau BERCHTOLD is situated near Prague in the fabulous land of Lada. Its name comes from the noble Berchtold family. They owned the chateau at the turn of the 20th century. In 2005, a complete reconstruction and revitalization of the chateau began. It transformed the compound to a place where interesting events take place. Especially families with children are fond of the chateau for its family atmosphere and delicious food.
