Krčín's Round Trip II.

Krčín's Round Trip II.

The second bicycle round trip will lead you to the surroundings of Petrovice. First, you can look over the entire countryside from the lookout-tower near Kuníček to realize what a beautiful corner of our country Krčín chose to be his home. Then, you either set out towards Skoupý, Bratřejov and Bratříkovice or you choose the opposite route through Kojetín and Porešín, and spend as much time as possible in Obděnice. This is the place where Krčín moved his family from Křepenice. He built here a grandiose mansion (including a wooden aqueduct from the neighbouring Ohrada), a brewery, sheep-cote, watermill and a series of ponds. One of them even bears the name Svět. As his last resting place he chose the dominant building of Obděnice - the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin. Inside the church is his tombstone, however, without the date of his death.
