The-Legend-of-The-Golem-Tres-Bohemes-1
Throughout the Czech Republic, the Golem is recognized as a popular figure. Its clay form is represented through various statues, signs, and may even be spotted in the cobblestones of the city’s sidewalks. Many restaurants and business are named after or make reference to the mysterious creature. But what is the Golem and what are...
Today’s post comes to us from an article originally written by Jacqueline Ruyak. The article appeared in the August 1996 issue of Doll World magazine. Unfortunately, I tried to search the company but to no avail. Does anyone have an update on Rezek Marionettes? Dating to medieval times, modern puppeteers keep Czech tradition alive with...
Old_Photos_of_Czech_Children_Tres_Bohemes
We came across a selection of old photographs of Czech children of the early 19th Century, most likely dressing up for school or church. As I browsed the photographs I wondered what kinds of lives these children went on to have. Note the selection of props and toys that some have. I especially like the sibling photos which fascinate...
Bozi-Dar-Czech-Republic-TresBohemes
Boží Dar is a place that few people outside of Milovice even know about, and even fewer know anything about its strange and darkly sinister Soviet history. In short, it’s an abandoned Soviet town smack dab in the middle of the Czech Republic.

Let’s step back in time today and travel to an abandoned spa with healing waters in Běloves. These mineral springs have been known and used since before the end of the 14th century. In fact, Albrecht Václav Eusebius z Valdštejna (or Albrecht von Wallenstein) born 1583 and died 1634 was a Bohemian military leader and politician who offered his...
Today we are sharing a story and some rarely seen illustrations from Josef Lada. This was originally published in Czech as O svátecních houbarích and appeared in Pestrý týden, issue # 24, published on June 15, 1927. We’ve translated it for you and we’re calling it The Festive Mushroom Pickers. Neighborly chatter was coming from one of them....
Mushroom-Stuffed-Tomatoes-and-Mushroom-Burgers-Topped-with-Egg
Retro Bohemian Mushroom Cuisine is the name that came to me when I decided to share these photos from my 80’s cookbook, Jihočeská houbařská kuchařka (South Bohemian Mushroom Cookbook). I’ve had mine since I can remember and the pages are worn and dog-eared, but I still use it, especially for unique mushroom recipes. Keep in mind that...
