Vesec u Sobotky

House No. 19

A grocery shop or a museum of feather? Many buildings are built and subsequently demolished, without receiving any profound interest from filmmakers. Then there are houses like the one in Vesec u Sobotky, numbered 19, that have made it into film history, and more than once.

In Jára Cimrman Lying, Sleeping (Jára Cimrman ležící, spící), the house no. 19 was changed into a museum of feather, where you would learn not only about how to cleanfeathers properly, you could also see a cross-section through a blanket. You can also visit the private room of Cimrman, the greatest Czech genius. Touching forbidden! Everything's just the way he had left it. The Master has provably touched shown exhibits - an unfinished cigar, wool socks, slippers by the bed, etc...

The house had a more ordinary role in the famous Czech comedy How to get Dad into a Reform School (Jak dostat tatínka do polepšovny). It represented a grocery shop where little Vašek and Luboš liked to bike to, not because it would offer extraordinary goods, but more because it was on the way to the rocks they loved to climb (and were forbidden to by Vašek's mother).
