Is this the real leaf? Is this just fantasy?. Bohemian Switzerland
Today we rhapsodize about the beautiful region called Bohemian Switzerland, but we're hundreds of miles from Switzerland. The name for the area originated with Swiss painters visiting the Kingdom of Bohemia, now the western half of the Czech Republic. They were reminded of their homeland by this region's dramatic sandstone formations. Turns out the acclaimed artist named Mother Nature finds inspiration here, too, turning the Bohemian Switzerland’s pockets of thick forest into a canvas of warm oranges and yellows every autumn.
