Interesting facts Hamous's farm in Zbečno
The building is situated in the very center of the village Zbečno, directly opposite the church of St. Martin and at first glance Hamous's farm looks like a classic, quite ordinary timbered house, but after entering the entrance, he lets us know its uniqueness. Despite its age, it is very well preserved and practically adapted in terms of layout. On the left are two chambers, located one above the other. The upper chamber was intended for storing crops, but if necessary and during the summer, the carriage also slept here. Tools were stored in the lower chamber. In the area behind the chambers there is a wooden ramp leading to the exchange, where the old farmer lived, who also had a smaller kitchen available. Directly opposite the entrance is an old bread oven and a black kitchen. The living rooms are then on the right, along with a small room and kitchen.
It will be very pleasantly surprising that everything here is kept completely clean, that the farm does not decay, on the contrary, it is well taken care of. Surely you will also appreciate the kind interpretation of a friendly guide. You can see the farm yourself after the explanation and touch and try a lot of exhibits.
Every Saturday and on public holidays, bread is usually baked here in the old oven. Hamousův statek is located in the beautiful surroundings of the Křivoklát forests, close to cultural gems such as the castles of Křivoklát, Žebrák, Točník or Karlštejn, so it is a really great tip for a trip!
