Trocnov is a small village near České Budějovice. I went there because I wanted to see a giant statue of a Middle-Ages national communist hero, Jan Žižka. This statue is in the middle of the wood, two kilometers from the road, and there is almost nothing else. Also, my host told me, when she was 9 or 10 years old, during the communist time, all the kids from the schools in the area had to do a cross-country run that started and ended at the statue. That sounded interesting enough to me, so I went there (and ended up walking A LOT that day)!
