Where you'll be

We will work at my place, in my outside workshop with beautiful landscape of Czech Paradise around. Our village is located in the northern part of Bohemia 85 km/60 min. by car from Prague. If you have enought time it is wort staying longer in this area - there is a lot of landmarks and opportunities for hiking etc. The place is also easily accesible from Prague by bus or train - to Jablonec nad Nisou or Zelezny Brod where I can come for you.
