Want to know a secret?
Why not visit the Bedřich Smetana Memorial in Jabkenice, near the town of Mladá Boleslav. There, in a gamekeeper’s lodge, with his daughter and son-in-law, Smetana lived out his final years. By then he was deaf. It was also there that he wrote several of his most important works (the operas The Kiss, The Secret, and The Devil's Wall) and completed his Má vlast cycle.
