In the Náchod Upland, not far from Dobruška, on the way to the Orlické Mountains, you will find Bystré (at 543 m), a village that has always been noted as the birthplace of good musicians and enjoying an active cultural and social life. A number of societies and ensembles (there was a brass band and an amateur theatre as early as in the 18th century) from Bystré have their admirers not only in the village but from far off. The most popular events are ballroom dances, the village fairs and f?tes. You may enjoy the use of the sports centre “U koupaliště“ (at the Swimming Pool), admire the Baroque parish church of St. Bartholomew from 1718, and the chapel of St. John ofNepomuk and its reconstructed belfry. The building housing the church of the Czech Brethren, from 1830, as well as the church in the village of Zákraví, a foregoer of Bystré, are also worth seeing. The fairytale patron of the village is the horse Viktor, who used to belong to the cottager Pábl. The humanity, love and friendship governing the village, those are the characteristics of the owner of the horse who saved an enchanted officer from the powers of hell. Viktor, the horse, turned back into a human being, nevertheless, he remained loyal to the village and its people.bystre
