Smithy in the Peatlands
Kovářská huť na blatech
Not far from Move Hrady, in the forested peat area called "blata" (peatland or marshland), you can find the Smithy in the Peatlands. This blacksmith workshop of master blacksmith Daniel Cerny is housed in the former machine workshop of the peat excavation company. Most of the equipment and tools are between 30 and 130 years old, but all still functionally and regularly used. The latest addition is a 130 year old C-type steam hammer weighing over 20 metric tonnes.
It is here that the true art of blacksmithing continues.
