High in the Alpine mountains, there is a unique building - the so-called hut Solvay. It was built in August 1915 year on the money climber Ernest Solvay. However, this man became a climber after retirement. All the same his old life he devoted to the production of soda from salt. Often spending time on the mountain routes in Alps, Solvay was well aware, how important it is for climbers to have a place to stay, even with a minimum of comfort. So he decided on the way to the top of the Matterhorn build a nook. Solvay hut built on top of the peak below 437 m, that is the height of 3260 meters above sea level. Building materials for this hard-to-place delivered mostly by pack animals. Although the building with a temporary lift. The original version was built in just five days. It has existed in its original form until the 1966 and was rebuilt. And after ten years in the hut even had a phone with emergency line.At all times in this tent is always stopped to rest many climbers, storming the height of the Matterhorn. They stop it now. Probably not many of them look back on Ernest as a specialist in the production of soda, but that, that it was he who built the hut, Everyone knows who is in this tiny little house visited. Himself Ernest Solvay had a long life. He was born in 1838 , and died in 1922. Agree, lucky there was a memory of a man.
