We could not have imagined a winter wonderland as picturesque as the one in Pustevny. Tucked away in Northeastern Czech Republic’s Beskedy Mountains, we arrived at night by car to this mini ski village of gingerbread houses. We stayed in the cozy cottage, Maměnka, beautifully decorated with traditional eastern European wood carved furniture. The full impact of this view hit us in the morning like an avalanche. The pristine white-out simply took my breath away.
