Welcome to the first and only Scandinavian web-site dedicated to the immortal Good Soldier Švejk and his creator Jaroslav Hašek.

For more information in English please see Švejk Central, a site featuring material about Švejk and Hašek. For readers of Czech the excellent Virtual museum of Jaroslav Hašek and Josef Švejk is by far the best source of information.

For tourists and Hašek-enthusiasts alike I can warmly recommend a visit to Lipnice nad Sázavou, the village where the bulk of Švejk was written and where the author is buried. There is no better place to stay than at the comfortable guesthouse Česká Koruna, today run by the authors descendants.
