Sixteen-year-old Ondřej Filgas fell in love with architecture while studying in primary school. The turning point for him was a visit to the Pavlov Archeopark in Moravia, which captivated him with its unusual atmosphere. He started looking around more and a year later he and a friend started an online guide. He now wants to publish his tips on houses, bridges, museums or lookouts in book form.

Ondřej Filgas wants to publish a printed guide for tourists who like to travel without a phone. “You just shove it in your pocket and hit the road,” describes the young student. The online platform and the pocket guide are called Rare Places and include about one hundred and thirty unusual places in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

“There are various places in the guidebook and on the website that differ in all sorts of ways, but they have one thing in common. Architecture, design and charisma. In addition to nice photos and short texts, in each post we offer a map, thanks to which you can plan your own route,” he says student from Vsetínsk.

He and a friend are now raising money for the publication of the first printed bedecres. The collection on the crowdfunding platform HitHit, which they announced at the end of August, can help them. In exchange for a financial contribution, it offers various types of rewards.
