Prague Spring 50 years old, but where is this?

Prague Spring 50 years old, but where is this?
While Spring seems far away for now, it’s 50 years ago today that the Prague Spring began in Czechoslovakia. Starting with the reign of Alexander Dubcek, political and economic reformation was introduced, which included more freedom of speech and the rehabilitation of political dissidents. Called ‘communism with a human face’, it was all very hopeful, until the Soviets came in August and the leader was replaced by a Communist by the old book…

Today’s frosty Friday Lady has to be from Czechoslovakia, as her Škoda 445 indicates. The model dates back to the late 1950s, so this picture was probably taken before the political thunder took place. What we’d love to know from you is if anyone is able to identify the place. We had our little series of ski resort quizzes last year (among them another Škoda Friday lady!), and would like to continue in that vein. So… who of you recognizes this lovely mountain resort? The impressive green-roofed building has to be a major giveaway?
