Even if it was a bit cold and down in the towns foggy, up the hill we were above the clouds and in the sun. The views were spectacular. Mountains in the clouds looked like small islands in the sea. Children were shooting the videoreport, taking a lot of pictures and learning about all things connected with this place. They already know about a writer and poet Petr Bezruč, after whom a cottage on the top and a hotel down the hill are named, they also learned about a scout memorial Ivančena and they know where to find the view of Slovak…
