Czech Republic 2013: Day 1 (Part 1), Part 2 will follow tomorrow… probably.
Ceske Budejovice (Budweiser) also called “Siena of South Bohemia”. I can see why. Sort of.
Hello! I was wondering if you have anything on Czech fashion? This is for a project for school and your blog seemed likw the right place to go! Děkuju! (I'm trying to learn Czech. Is this how you say thanks? ^u^)
You’re welcome and good luck with learning Czech, so far I’ve spotted no mistakes ;)
I’m having again trouble with askbox so if anybody sent me something in a past two weeks and I didn’t respond, it’s because it didn’t get through and not because I’m ignoring you.
Please try to use rather submit button than askbox (it’s possible to send it anonymously this way too) to prevent your messages from getting eaten.
Thank you and have nice day :)

Otakar Lebeda (1877-1901) was a Czech painter, one of the most prominent pupil’s of Julious Mařák who used his scholarship to spent it in Paris and Barbizon. At first he was influenced by realism but in his later works you’d find more and more elements of expressionism. Lebeda’s seemingly peaceful and trouble-free life ended by his own hand for an unknown reason when he was 24 years old.
