This event was conected with many sacrifice – we had to wake up at 4 a. m., but when we came , it was absolutely fantastic. I never forget, as we entered other part of fortress and we entered empty atelier, with fantastic sculptures, including sculptute for remembrance of dead horses in Austro-Prussian war, decent light and silent music. která se konala v Josefově, respektive v někdejší vojenské pevnosti Josefov. Outside this place we saw white horse. At first, I was really not able to say, if it is sculpture, animal or ghost.
