Antal Stašek came from a peasant family
In the settlement of Stanový, which falls under the village of Zlatá Olešnice, about 2.5 km northwest of Vysoké nad Jizerou, there is a beautifully preserved birth house of the writer Antala Stašek.
Preserved log cabin
The ground floor timbered building is originally from 1765 and is nicely restored. The middle part is brick and the original entrance is preserved. On the east side of the building, a newer timbered annex adjoins the original barns.
Writer Antal Stašek
The writer Antal Stašek (real name Antonín Zeman) was born here in this house on July 22, 1843. He was the first of a total of ten children. The writer wrote about life in the Giant Mountains. His most famous works include the novel „About the Shoemaker Matthew and His Friends“ and the short story series „The Madmen of Our Mountains“.
The entire unique timbered area with a roof of wooden shingles is protected as a monument. The house was sensitively renovated in 2013–2015 and now serves as a library and venue for cultural events.
There is a memorial plaque on the southwest corner of the house.
