Weekend in Černý Důl

This weekend was a team getaway in Černý Důl, a small town of about 700 people in the Krkonoše Mountains.  It's about a 3,5 hour drive from Brno near the Polish border.

Černý Důl is popular in the summer for hiking and for skiing in the winter.

Krkonoše is a mountain range in the north of Czechland and southwest Poland.  The mountains in Silesia  occupy 454 sq km (175 square miles) in Czechland and 177 sq km (68 square miles) in Poland.

Sněžka is the highest point in Czechland at 1.603 metres (5,259 feet) tall.

On Friday night we arrived at our pension and had some great food waiting for us.  The chef apparently placed high in a Czech Masterchef competition.  

It was quite a spread with the absolutely fanciest chlebíčky I've ever had.

On Saturday we took the ski lift up the mountain.  Half the group went skiing and snowboarding while some of us went for a long winter hike.

In typical Czech fashion you hike until you come to a pub where you have a beer before continuing on until you reach the next pub.  

On Saturday night we had dinner and hung out drinking at the pension.  So much slivovice but fortunately not enough to make Sunday morning painful.

On the way back home we stopped off at EB Diner for lunch.  I sear that this is my new happy place.  Overall a great weekend.
