  • Post dedicated to the great Czech poet Karel Mahe (or rather its monument, found us while walking on Peterzhinskomu Hill), wants to start his own heartfelt words from a poem «may»: «pozdní Byl první máj-večer-večerní máj-byl lásky čas ". I believe that even the most modest knowledge of Czech will enable you to translate these strings. Strange as it sounds, but it is the work of the author, is a classic piece of Czech romantic lyricism, was rejected by the people. However, it gave everything in its place: in 1910-1912 years of grateful descendants on one of the slopes of the Peterzhina on the project of one of the largest Czech sculptors Josef Václav Myslbek XIX century (Josef Václav Myslbek hotel) with the participation of the architect Antonina Balshaneka (Antonín Balšánek) erected a monument to the poet. Figure a cute smiling young man with a pen in one hand and a bouquet of lilacs in another. There is a version that the sculptor working on part of the portrait monument to Karel Mahe, not really true, really beautifying, depicted his appearance is in the shape of a poet was restored by experts only in 1938, following the exhumation of the body. It is believed that the sculpture of Karel Mahi is one of the most popular in Prague, a symbol of eternal youth and love. And let the present Maha looked different than the Petrzhina statue, but lovers, walkers on this amazing places may evenings are not even aware of it, and the spring kisses do not interfere with passion ...

  • Karel Hynek Macha is early 19th century Czech poet and writer, though he passed away in the age of 24, he left a deep legacy in the Czech literature. His tragic lyric poem Máj (May) is not only a firm part of every schools curriculum for representing Czech romanticist poetry and admirable form of language. His poem lives on in the knowledge of general public. Most Czechs would know to cite or at least identify the first verses of the poem of "Máj".
  • Is a very romantic place. The hill in general where the monument is. This poet wrote the most epic love poem written in check lenguaje, called "maj" So, in Praga the livers day is celebrated the first of may where the lovers visit this hill and this monument.
