Lost in translating

Hey, we're not above having some fun with language. We have previously talked about the huge difference that two small letter can make as well as the never-ending stream of entertainment provided at Signspotting.com.

So you can imagine that we are still giggling after seeing these two signs from a castle near Prague:

The Czech text seems to be closer to "Interpretation prohibited" and is probably intended to prevent noisy tourist packs from annoying other visitors. Hmm, makes you wonder how say say "We don't want your economy-sustaining tourist money" in Czech...
