We were able to stop here and look around and learn a lot about the culture. There are several information panels about Czech culture, the egg, and its creation.

Just down the road are several smaller eggs, painted differently, in front of various businesses. There is a good restaurant as well, but we were there on a Monday, when it was closed.

Giant egg.

World's Largest Hand-Painted Czech Egg

This is the Czech capital of Kansas. It is well worth the stop. There is a Czech Festival every year at the end of July. The hotel nearby is very charming and the food at Made From Scratch was amazing. This is well worth the stop.

Just off the highway, maybe 8 minutes. The town is full of cute photo opportunities. The egg is big and beautiful! When we arrived, they were having a Czech festival -- so cool seeing all the costumes. They are also in the process of building a Czech opera house.

Great place to stretch your legs. No food or gas though.
