Motor racing circuit Most
Press the buttons and send the racing cars to the circuit! The model represents the motor racing circuit in North Bohemian Most. In this city, car and motorcycle races have been held since 1947, but at the time they were still in the streets. But motoring and races were so popular that it was necessary to build a real racing circuit. They used a space at the place of depot of former brown coal mine. With small adjustments it was open in 1983 and it serves to today.
The church of Assumption of Virgin Mary in Most
Next to the model of surface mine there is a church. It is not an ordinary church although it first was. It became unique and really worldwide known in 1975. At the time it was shifted by 841 metres!
