Haná Farmhouse Environmental Centre

The Guide to the Haná Farmhouse Environmental Centre

The replica of the turn‑of‑the‑19th‑and‑20th‑century farmhouse was built in June 2011. In its construction, some traditional building materials were used, such as reed for the farm’s roof, clay plaster for the interior. Find a shed, a dovecote, rabbit hutches, a dung hole, and a period earth‑closet in the courtyard. Look at agricultural machines and tools under the little roof. From the courtyard, enter the retired farmer’s home – a room and a kitchen. Through the second entrance, explore other farmhouse areas – a kitchen, a room, a smoke kitchen, and a larder. The equipment and furnishings of the farmhouse are period. The stove is built from period tiles and is working.
