Where the Czech...? #43

Anybody know where this photo was taken?

I didn't realize that UFOs had landed in CZ. Perhaps they are the flying saucers from Roswell.

The guy in the foreground looks like he might have jumped out of a UFO doesn't he?

Not that far from the truth actually...

So is it an observatory of some sort?

Snezka?

It is Sněžka. Well done Michael. I thought that one might have been up your alley, so to speak.

Sněžka is the Czech Republic's highest mountain, at 1602m. It's in the Krkonoše National Park along the Polish border.

The building in the picture is actually on the Polish side. That knee-high white post in the foreground is one of the border markers. I was in the Czech Republic when i took the pic though, so I think it counts as 'Where the Czech?'.

The building is a weather station upstairs and restaurant downstairs. There's a sprinkling of other buildings on the summit, including a chapel and a post office.
