About Jára...

I'm 59 year old man, currently living in The Czech Republic circa 25 km southwest of the capital city Prague. Not far from my home there is a world known castle Karlštejn, webpage https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl%C5%A1tejn ,and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNlQfVBHKac where Czech crown jewels were locked in Medieval Times. The castle has never been conquered. In addition, in proximity of my home there is an abandoned limestone quarry nicknamed "Amerika". The limestone mining in this quarry ended in 1963. Nowadays the quarry is flooded with approximately 20 m of water, natural habitat of crayfish, and it's a renown turistical place. Photo of the quarry can be found on following link https://www.lomy-amerika.cz/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/DSC00098.jpg and https://foursquare.com/v/velk%C3%A1-amerika/4da0738331a6b60cf5257318/photos .
