Just another unknown village that I would probably never go if not one famous abandoned place situated in the area. Štědrá is a small settlement situated far a away from big cities, and first thing that you can see there after leaving the train are a few old buildings covered with a shade of decay and emptiness surrounding them. However, despite the gloomy impression they create, it is still worth to stay there for a while and explore the area around.
For the beginning, a short walk through the village.
A small block of flats. It is rather unexpected to see such building in the village, however, somehow it fits here perfectly and its colourful walls make great composition with greenness around.

Probably the most impressive sight in Štědrá is an old palace. Significantly taken over by decay, but renovation has already started, so seems that the building will get a second life.
Following the empty streets of the village it is impossible not to notice a few old houses damaged by time. In case of the one below only flowers in the window suggest that it is still inhabited.
However, some of them, as this one with the impressive red roof, are already abandoned.
A quick look inside.
One more abandoned house—a neighbour of the previous one.
Situated literally in the middle of nowhere, Štědrá is full of greenness which is easy to find after stepping off the roads crossing the village.
Some of the view are really impressive and full of rustic idyll.
Leaving Štědrá, one more look on the railways area in the village. Gloomy and beautiful at the same time, it perfectly reflects the atmosphere of the village and makes you stay there and enjoy it a few minutes longer before the train will break the silence filling up the area.
