Tower Shadow - Tabor, Czech Republic (Spring 2003)


Tabor, for those not familiar with the Hussite Revolution, was a Hussite stronghold during those days in the early 1400s. The town itself was built in such a way as to make a quick invasion difficult. The narrow streets were designed with many right angles, making it extremely difficult to maneuver horses into the city center. There is also an ancient system of interconnected cellars, which was interesting to tour, underground in the town.

I clicked on the link provided. (The history of Tabor) This morning Mr. špalek was looking over my shoulder at the screen-we must have had a 25 minute discussion on Tabor. This morning I was uninformed, but now I believe I could administer a briefly intelligent conversation about the establishment of Tabor and other interesting tidbits...

Tabor rules and Zizka rocks da house! I lived in Tabor for several months and took a lot of photos there. It was a very nice time in my life. Here's some shots I took, but only about a half of 1%:

Hey, thanks praguelodyte. Very nice shots.

And MissHay, I'm glad you got to experience yet again the compendium unto himself that Mr. Spalek is. He's got encyclopedic knowledge on all sorts of topics.
