A special Czech guest

In the period July 20-26, Stanislav Kázecký, current Consul General of the Czech Republic in São Paulo (Brazil), used Draguseni as his headquarters in order to make trips around Bukovina and Bessarabia.

After having visited Kishinev, Tiraspol and Kamenets-Podolsky, we guided Kázecký to the impressive fortress of Khotin at the shore of the Dniester river (picture) and through the former Austro-Hungarian capital of Kronland Bukovina: Czernowitz, today's Chernivtsi, in Ukraine.

The Czech Consul had also the occasion to wander around Draguseni and meet its kind inhabitants, carrying good memories in his luggage about local peasant life mixed to the multicultural past of urban life in this corner of Europe.
