Smetana's Litomyšl

historical centre

In summer, each archway in Litomyšl’s arcade blooms with geraniums. They swing at the feet of historic houses that recount tales of Mrs. Rettigová’s cakes, of the brewmaster Smetana’s beer, of the artist Váchal’s fantastical paintings, and even of Havel helping a Spanish king suddenly find himself over a cup of coffee (grounds included!) at the pub U Černého orla. Not only geraniums but the entire town just blooms with culture and community life.
