Dear Henrieta,

The industrial and housing garden city in Bat'ovany was the last
BATA company development built by architect and urban designer
Jirí Voženílek before WWII. The center of the city is dominated by
a large catholic church that can be seen to the right and was
designed by another great architect: Vladimír Karfík.

Respectfully,
