What is the motivation for people to spend their time at the lakeside of the reservoir in the southeastern tip of the Czech Republic? Why do they set up their second homes with bizarre architectural artefacts in this strange environment though the magic of the place dissolves after several visits..
What makes the members of the community or holidaymakers, their husbands and wives, children, relatives, friends, voluntarily spend a weekend or even a year-round stay in this strange emptiness?
Is it the longing for meditation in the country?
Is it the necessity of establishing informal contacts in a romantic environment?
Maybe here they can quench their desire for life in a community which the city can no longer offer.
The answer to these questions could be given by these residents only, but the question is whether they know the answer themselves...?
