Having breakfast one day looking on the ceiling, I recalled one VT member, who likes to do these things like walking on the roof. And it made me write this article.
This warning is only for people, whom walking around the town is not enough. Some "experts" ( I know one of them just here amoung VT members ) like to discover places of the accomodation where they stay. For example the places like the roofs are. Yeah!
Friends, I do not reccomend to visit the flat part of roof of Penzion Ruze. If you dont know what is under, I will tell you. If you fall down over, you can finnish on someboday's plate, because this flat roof is situated above the dinnning room there.The roof is tough enough but looking at it from dinning room it do not seem to be so. hehe
