This village is Louka in Czech Republick. Louka is very small village in cultural region of Moravian Slovakia (Slovácko). It is located in south part of Moravia. You can see this traditional blue painting on house exterior through entire Moravske Slovacko region. Many old houses in our region are decorated like this. My own grandma painted almost on everithing,such as Easter eggs, furniture,porcelain,dishes and much moreNovember 14, 2015 at 8:06 pm #434805
Amazing granny! It’s work of art indeed.
