It was a hot Sunday afternoon as we drove from Prachatice to Plzen, so we pulled off the main road into the tiny town of Nepomuk for some ice cream and a cold drink. The tiny town center holds a statue of Saint John Nepomuk, who was born here around 1340. Radio Prague told the interesting story of the Nepomuk area on 9 September 2009; click here to read about Saint John, graves that glow when someone’s about to die, a landscape littered with the petrified cattle of a greedy pagan and the ghost of an evil musketeer who walks the earth with the still-ferocious spectre of his dog.
Who knew? We spent only a few peaceful moments enjoying cold refreshments on the tiny deck of the café.
