Visit the Bohemian Alps in Nebraska this weekend

Nestled in the hills of eastern Nebraska is an area affectionately known as the Bohemian Alps. The area got its nickname from the first settlers who came from the Czech lands and thought that these hills looked like their home. Today, Nebraska is the state with the highest percentage of residents of Czech ancestry in the country: 5.5%. Several towns in the Bohemian Alps are among the top 10 communities with the highest percentage of people claiming Czech ancestry: Oak Creek (38.2%), Wilber (27.3%) and David City (28%). To say that the Bohemian Alps region is still influenced by those previous generations would be an understatement.
