Our last day in Dačice began with us packing our bags and checking out of the little penzion we’d stayed in for a week.
We finally got around to visiting the town’s museum. Much more information than I’ve presented here can be found on the museum’s official website (at least partially in English)
In 1840, Jakub Kryštof Rad began managing the local sugar refinery. A year later, after witnessing the struggles and injuries his wife suffered while dealing with the ridiculous torture devices used to pinch off hunks of the rock-hard sugar loaves his factory was producing, Rad invented the first press for making sugar cubes. Yes, the sugar cube was invented in Dačice.
The museum has many exhibits that chronicle the town’s history.
We also finally got around to visiting the bell tower that dominates the town’s skyline from any angle.
Thanks for stopping by.
This is an open thread.
