History

Faith and brotherhood

Tested to the limit by poverty and tribulation, the Bohemians who settled in Puhoi last century clung to two guiding principles: be faithful to the Church and always help your neighbour. Hard work, too, created strong bonds within the community. Today, although bullock teams like John Rauner's have made way for tractors and four-wheel-drives, the traditions of the pioneers live on. An early morning worshipper finds solace at the altar of the village church, built by his ancestors.
