House number 185, Lipnice nad Sázavou. Švejk and his creator at work. The house is now a museum dedicated to the writer.

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

This page, titled 'Tourism', has still not been translated to English, whereas the pages indicated below in blue have. The other pages exist in Norwegian only (view by clicking the flag in the top right-hand corner).

  • HomeIntroduction to this web site, the novel and Švejk.
  • NewsNews and announcements from this web site.
  • AuthorBrief introduction to Jaroslav Hašek, his life and writing.
  • PeopleList of the people mentioned in the novel. Nearly complete.
  • PlacesList and description of geographical entities. Includes countries, oceans, lakes, rivers, islands, cities, towns and villages.
  • InstitutionsList and description of public institutions, newspapers and magazines, hotels, restaurants, public houses.
  • MapMap of the route Švejk took to the front (reduced functionality).
  • TourismInformation for Švejk-interested tourists (Norwegian and Czech).
  • LinksA collection of links related to Švejk and Hašek.
  • LiteratureLiterature referred to on this web site.
  • Who is whoPeople who in one way or another have contributed to our knowledge on Švejk and 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.
