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 Meters, that is the height of 3260 metres 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.
