Book consisting of lucky seven Czech stories in Korean translation is a Christmas gift by the Embassy of the Czech Republic to their friends, colleagues and collaborators in Korea.
Stories by leading Czech literary classics Jaroslav Hašek, Karel Čapek, Jan Neruda, Jakub Arbes and Ivan Klíma were selected by Ambassador Jaroslav Olša, jr. and published in cooperation with Happy Reading Books, a small publishing house which produced already five different titles by Czech writers since Spring 2011. Book gift under the title „Villa in Trója“ also includes a bibliography of Korean translations of Czech writers as well as a presentation by various Korean and Czech companies and institutions which contribute to enhancement of the ties between the countries in trade and culture.
„Villa in Trója“ will have a very limited distribution in bookshops, as it is the Embassy of the Czech Republic which will present it to wide-range of people and insitutions around the country.
