Interesting facts Hronov - birth house of Alois Jirásek
It is located in Hronov near the square and its whiteness is unmissable. It is a low timbered building, surrounded by a park, today with a statue of our giant. Previously, there was a garden in which the spa was located. The local water was healing, more precisely two of its springs - Hronovka and Regnerka, so people from the area came here for healing. However, the spa did not have a vast size. It consisted of only two baths and a nearby well. The Jiráseks made extra money in this way, but it was not their only trade.
There was a furnace inside the building and the family sold its products on days off. Adjacent to this room was only one room, which the future writer demanded as a background for his constant study and writing. It was not easy, as he had eight more siblings; they were cramped in the rest of the dwelling.
Be sure to visit the house. Include it in your schedule if you go to the Teplice Rocks or the Broumov region as such. You look into the face of the modesty with which people lived here one hundred and fifty years ago.
