At the site of a former clay extraction site, in 1999-2000, a small “model” medieval village was built. The fictional village Tulezim (the name is derived from a fairy tale) transports the visitor back to the 14th / 15th century and shows the life, architecture and habits of those days.

Originally 15 dwellings, including a small village church were constructed, some of which burnt down, cause arson in June 2003. By 2009, 6 homesteads are presented with housing and agricultural buildings, a church, covered market and a fort. All houses are modelled after “how it could have been”, not after specific excavations or historic houses.

The site would welcome maintenance applying good craftsmanship as houses are become less hospitable and kilns are falling apart. Sometimes, living history groups take residence in the village, both in Summertime and during the Christmas period, when Řepora is covered in snow.
Řepora can be easily reached by public transport from Prague.
