Places in Czech Republic


Today I am sharing some of my photos from Nýrsko, which is the town that I had assigned to October in my photo project for this year. 35 photos again, as in case of the previous towns.

Nýrsko is a small town with about 5.000 inhabitants and long history reaching far back, the first written records refer to 14th century.

The town has been known especially for the company Okula that used to specialise in spectacle optics and mechanics. It started its operation in 1895 and still operates. Nowadays it produces rims but also safety glasses and various plastic moulded parts for automotive industry, household appliances, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry. You can see the name of the company placed on the water tower looking down on the town.

Another interesting feature relating to the town is a nearby dam which serves as a reservoir of drinking water. The dam was built in 1969 and as you can see in my photos, its spillway shows quite low level of the water in the dam. This year was dry and we need more rain…

The autumnal colours suited the town and dam pretty well and added something special to the impression…

OK, let me remind you again that the following selection of my photos is not meant to be any representation of the town, it just reflects the variety that captured my attention.
