Throughout his life, Dvořák was known for his interest in trains – keeping track of rail schedules, and watching the trains arrive and depart. His fascination surely came from watching the railway line being built right outside his house when he was a young boy in the 1840s. Now the station is a mess – the ticket office surely hasn't sold a ticket in years. Dvořák would be disappointed by its condition. [He was also notably interested in pigeons, but I'm not sure why – perhaps homing pigeons arrived on the trains]. I took few photos of the station as I waited for the train back to Prague.
