Góry czeskie i słowackie jako element narodowego mitu

Strony: 184-190



The study is based on a comparison of Czech travelogues to the Krkonoše (Giant Mountains) and the Tatry (Tatras) from the first half of the 19th century. Although the mountains Krkonoše and Tatry represented different, geographically relatively distant localities, their literary image was identically formed in the context of patriotic romanticism. It helped in particular that the Giant Mountains and the Tatras could be included in the “ownership” of the Czech nation and used in the construction of the Czech national myth.
