Long Description:
CZ: Svetove proslula liska Bystrouska se narodila nedaleko hajovny ve Stritezi. Opustenou v lese ji nalezl mistni revirnik a vychoval ji mezi domacimi zviraty.
O kouscich lisky se dozvedel malir a grafik Stanislav Lojek a v roce 1889 zpracoval jeji pribehy ve 195 kresbach, ktere vychazely v Lidovych novinach. Tyto komiksy inspirovaly spisovatele Rudolfa Tesnohlidka k literarnimu zpracovani. Tesnohlidkova pohadka pak poslouzila jako predloha pro svetove znamou operu Leose Janacka Liska Bystrouska, ktera mela premieru v roce 1924 v Brne.

EN: World-known Cunning Little Vixen was born near gamekeeper's house in Stritez. Local game warden found the deserted fox and raised it with domestic animals.
In 1889 painter Stanislav Lojek created a set of 195 illustrations about Vixen's adventures. These illustrations were released in Czech newspaper Lidove noviny. Then Czech novelist Rudolf Tesnohlidek wrote a fairy-tale about the fox inspired by these illustrations. Finally the fairy-tale by Tesnohlidek was an inspiration for opera The Cunning Little Vixen composed by Leos Janacek. First performance of this world-known opera was in 1924 in Brno.
