I paired my visit to Ostrava in July with some research on the Czech Republic for Lonely Planet, visiting both nearby Olomouc and (pictured here) Brno. This is the lobby of the 1960s retro-futuristic Hotel Continental. I loved hanging around Brno for this assignment and used the time to gather material for a kind of love letter to the city: “Learning Moravian Folk Songs.” Photo by Mark Baker.
