What stone houses are for Handlova, villas from the turn of the last century are typical for Liberec.

They were built mostly by the German-speaking bourgeoisie at a time when Liberec became an important centre of the textile industry. After the war, however, all Czech new settlers could aspire to such housing, and it is this social change that our researcher Karina Hoření focuses on in her fieldwork.
