Not so long ago we introduced you Obříství, an unusual central-Bohemian town. Chlumín is located nearby and even there are several interesting things – a castle, a Marian column or the Church of St Mary Magdalene.
Today we visit a place, which remained hidden to many travellers until the present. It is mostly due to the fact the place is few meters under ground. Despite it is close to Prague only few have heard about one of the most interesting miner open air museum near Beroun.
Close to the town of Hranice and around the three-states area of Bohemia, Bavaria and Saxony there is a small scale protected area where are precious plants and animals. Paradoxically, the Iron Curtain was the reason why life developed there so extensively.
Land around Neratovice, a place with not particularly good reputation from ecologists, is surprisingly diverse. It would be foolish to condemn this region just because there is Spolana. Perhaps, our article will change mind of many of those who are still hesitating. We will talk about Liblice today, a town not far from Neratovice and close to the Kokořínsko Protected Area.
The third and the last part of our journey in the Hruboskalský region will end at Valdštejn Castle, as the title suggests. It will not be the only stop since there are many other places worth visiting.
"The Region of Karlovy Vary – a strong dam of socialism and peace ". This old motto captures the position of the town of Hranice in Bohemia. It was the place where the Iron Curtain entered Czechoslovakia, this was the town on “the end” of the world.
Well, you will hardly see such a place! The village square in Obříství is truly unique not only with its area but also its location. Obříství has its own distinct atmosphere despite the fact its landmarks aren’t in the best condition. The first look will not enchant you but it is worth exploring.
Hrubá Skála and its vicinity have everything one has sought in locality called Bohemian Paradise from time immemorial. It is a piece of beautiful land, forests, rocks and sights, which looks like they were taken from some fairy tales. A castle on Hrubá Skála is not the only attraction of land of sandstone rocks, a land located between the Region of Liberec, Královehradecký and Středočeský. Turnov is a central city of this area.
The Šumava National Park begins with this border town that has a history of lumbering. The surrounding of this town is mostly hills and mountains and Stožec is the highest of them (1065 m n. m.). Once there was a castle that didn’t survive until present. A railroad (since 1910) and the River Studená Vltava cross the town.
Panenské Břežany – tiny by area, large by significance. This small Central-Bohemian town located only 15 kilometers from Prague had many times an important if not main role in the Czech history.
