Proverb-Prague-Tres-Bohemes
Proverbs and sayings are something that people have used throughout the centuries to describe their feelings and state their opinions. Such short sayings can be funny, witty, and truthful. Some people live by them, while others don’t even realize how much they use them. Czech people use proverbs just as much as Americans, if not more, but a lot of them don’t...
The Uniqueness of Czech Character | Tres Bohemes
Today we are sharing a wonderful guest post on Czech character by Mila Rechcigl. The images included in the post were selected by me… An uninformed person may wonder what is so special about the Czech character. Let me assure you at the outset that it really exists. I should know, being a Czech myself, and...

But I have to confess, it’s also because posting photos is much quicker than spending several hours needed to write a more complex post on...
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. But first, let’s consider the name, Boží Dar. This translates quite literally to...
Today we’re taking a trip down memory lane for those who used to smoke. Czech’s have always been wonderful artists, illustrators and designers and these Czech cigarette box covers show the various different styles that the tobacco companies produced. Some look like popular American brands, others have a more Soviet feel while some carry absolute...
St. Patrick’s Day in Prague is celebrated for the entire weekend in Prague. This is because every year, more and more expats & locals are loving and supporting the traditional celebrations that make up St. Patrick’s day. Now there aren’t a lot of Irish people in Prague, and St. Patrick’s Day really has nothing to do...
