In May, 1990, the reknowned Czech author Bohumil Hrabal (1914-1997) visited the Department of Slavonic Languages and Literatures at the University of Glasgow. Jan Čulík was present and later took Hrabal for a trip by car to Loch Katrine. On his return to Czechoslovakia, Bohumil Hrabal wrote an experimental text about this which was published in his volume Dopisy Dubence (Letters to April). In this contribution, Jan Čulík compares the image of Hrabal's visit to Glasgow and to Scotland as it is featured in his literary text to what happened in reality.
