Places in Czech Republic


Today I am sharing some of my photos from Nečtiny, the municipality I had assigned to November in my photo project for 2018. 35 photos again, as for all towns in this project.

The municipality Nečtiny consists of 12 parts populated by 650 inhabitants. It is an area with long history reaching back to 12th century and several interesting buildings, which are especially the chateau, church of St. Anna, church of St. James with adjacent cemetery and burial chapel of St. Teresa.

The chateau was built in the 16th century, rebuilt several times and nowadays it is owned and used as a training and recreation centre by the University of West Bohemia. The chateau is said to be one of the best places in the Czech Republic for observing the night sky.

The chapel of St. Teresa was once used as a vault of the Mendsdor-Pouilly family, who owned the chateau from 1839 to 1945 when it was confiscated. Nowadays the chapel is situated on the premises of a cooperative farm, which looks quite unusual, to put it mildly.

As always, let me add that the following selection of my photos is not intended to be any representation of the municipality, it just reflects what I saw and felt attracted by.
