I hope this is enough for you to enjoy the video more :) Feel free to ask anything.
That's a good write up. You should put it in the video's description. I'd do a good comment, like, etc. on the video but I'm going to delete my yt channel. Was Moravia its own country once? How did the two merge?

iam not a youtuber... i dont care too much about views or likes, its ok :) I did the video for me, for my friends and for ppl that are just interested.

Moravia... yes, it was its own Kingdom... its all complicated, I think it got pretty big by marrying others around and such. The whole europian history is very rich. Iam not a historian to tell you exactly.

There is propably a YT video for that ;)

OK... one new fresh photo album from last weekend. Shot with a proper camera. I hope you enjoy it.

It was a weekend with my friends in a cabin in Orlické hory (Eagle Mountains). Weather was not the greatest but especially after all those lockdowns it was nice to drink beer with people :) and eat awesome czech food we made ourselves.
We also did some small hikes (with kids and pregnant women). Very slowly got on the higest local mountain to a lookout tower. And second day was with a cable car up to the hills and then back down on a path that was made for kids (you can see a princess there). Lastly you go around an abandoned church (which is actually being reconstructed, so its not abandoned anymore).

for everyone incl. google-and-other-corps-and-social-network haters, its on my hosting here:

That food looks delicious. The scenery high in the mountains here is a lot like that but not quite as green.

That was a gastroporn :)

That is basically the most Czech traditional food there is, called Knedlo-vepřo-zelo - dumplings can be two types (one is just from flour, other from potatoes), pork meat, and cabbage (or you can have spinach). Czech food is alot about pork and cabbage. After things get back to normal, you can come and we can go to a restaurant for that one :)

Anyone is welcome in your small country.

one new hike during the last weekend. It was a trail at Vltava river. Pretty "offroady", not easy, not for kids too much. Very steep slope with a chance to fall on the rocks and to the river. Not that bad for healthy adult tho. Only about 7,5 km circuit, but not fast to go around. Its called Drbákov - Albertovy skály (Drbakov - Albert's rocks).
You have some things, translations and such in the description. 99% of the photos are just shot to JPEG, but i edited them on my PC anyway. I might aswell shoot raw next time.

The attachement is an audio recording so you know how a czech forrest sounds like :) (i thought it could be nice)

Hope you like it :)

Thats the official part of the Czech woods!
The private part isnt disclosed in any of the pictures!
We had a case of a major of a small town who was documented with his secretary in the woods! He was filmed with one of those surveillor cameras that the hunters use..and strap onto the trees...!
Well that poor guy got fired....! :lol: :lol: :lol:
:o

Beautiful! So green. The sky is great in many of the photos. Many bird sounds. Here it is nearly silent in the desert. When a whirlwind picks up sand nearby you can hear it hitting the leaves of plants. A hiss. In the mountain forests sounds are wind, coyotes, bird sounds are mostly ravens. Coyotes and ravens make many different sounds. Insects at night. I like wilderness away from trails and campsites. This waterfall was more enjoyable before the forest service bought the land and put trails, steps, and signs there. Sometimes the historical and other info. on signs is interesting though. https://www.splododyne.com/splododyne-o ... waterfall/

Every form of nature is beuatiful in its own way. Even the deserts. I like the rock formations there.
Ya CZ is quite green place, not as green as tropical, but still green (during summer time). But we have also desert, its about 1 sq km :D i think it even has one dune. I need to visit it, Its not that far yet Ive never been there.
