CZ, Krupka – A Town of Miners and Romantic Poets in the Heart of the Ore Mountains
heading (paragraph): Towns
Published: 29.11.2019

Krupka lies below the slopes of the Ore Mountains and we are not surprised that it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thanks to its romantic surroundings and historical center, it has been popular with tourists since the 19th century. The ruins of Krupka Castle offer a beautiful view of the surroundings, such as the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and the Hospital Church of Holy Spirit. You must definitely visit the Starý Martin sightseeing tunnel, as tin mining is famous for Krupka.
