The half-timbered houses define a region surrounding Lusatian Mountains at the border region of Bohemia, Saxonia and polish Silesia.
The most obvious feature of a half-timbered house are the wooden arches surrounding a ground floor wooden cabin. A wooden cabin protects against the very cold winters of the region. The first floor is either a framework - sometimes hidden under wooden planks or slates, or (mainly in Bohemia) also a log construction. The half-timbered house is a mix of the Czech and Lusatian (or generally Slavic) log construction and the Franconian framework. The half-timbered houses are very comfortable for both the work and the dwelling.
The Half-Timbered Houses Day is being held on the last Sunday of May, at both sides of the border, at both Saxonia and Bohemia.
