First picture: this is the way they built in Southern Bohemia until the 19th century. There are a few villages that still have majority of these farm houses. Look at the tree, looks as old as the house itself.
Second picture: I was wandering why I felt like putting these two pics together and there is actually that theater portal that is little like the gate into the farm. And there are other things, too, like village houses and folk theater or something. The theater is paper and was found at my friend's cottage when she bought it. Click on it.
