Looking from the park to the Town Library

Puhoi retains much of its Bohemian atmosphere and culture, with vibrant contributions from residents from across the world. The story of it’s settlement is well documented by the Heritage Museum.

The Puhoi Pub, with eclectic artifacts and colourful characters, is not to be missed, as well as the century-old Church,the Town Library , and our Hall
