Poděbrady returns to its past glory of the First Republic time. At least it everything suggests. Compared to previous years this city greatly revived. It is full of people, full of fun and places where it is possible to go.
In Nehvizdy a small town, a baroque church is bathing under the sun. It is dedicated to St Wenceslaus and it tries to catch your attention. Another interesting thing about this place are events that had happened here during the Second World War, because in Nehvizdy a period of repressions caused by Heydrich’s assassination began.
Less than twenty kilometers from Kolin is a small town, small but cozy Zasmuky. Today, we live less than two thousand people.
How punker Kodym and Becvary Castle go together? Simply. He bought it and, as a matter of fact, he saved it. You can find Kodym’s residence about 15 kilometers from Kolin.
This time we visit Mlada Boleslav, a city about 50 kilometers from Prague situated in the region of Central Bohemia. You probably know it as the home to the world famous car company.
Last week we showed bit of the history and sights of Mlada Boleslav. Today, we see the main tourist attraction, a place where over 100 years cars have been produced. Yes, the destination is the Skoda car Museum.
This time we will take you out of city, but not too far from it. We will take you to the junction of two rivers - the Elbe and Cidlina, but also to the place, that has, God knows why, irresistible charm.
This rather small spa town makes variegation of Labe (Elbe) countryside. We recommend you therefore, when you pass through, that it is worth to do a stop there.
Libice is a small village guarding till now the traces of past history. No palaces, castles or chateaux availabel, you can see the basements of palace and church only, coming from 10th century.
Do you wish to be more closely to the nature? Do you like forest smell and sounds? So, would you visit Kersko, a loved place of writer Bohumil Hrabal.
Not far from the town of Poděbrady, only 40 kms distant from Prague, in Nymburk district, you find the community of Sadská - very interesting place from historical point of view.
Nymburk is a district town in Central Bohemia, and remains probably for ever in a shade of near Poděbrady Spa. The colonnade or healing springs are missing there but another places of interest which are to be admired, are available in sufficient number, such as, for instance, medioeval fortificatioms of Postřižiny Beer.
Mělník: who did not know the name of this town, popular at least according to the name, famous through its wine cultivation and confluence of two most important Bohemian's rivers, i.e. Labe and Vltava?
The town of Dobříš is located approx.50 kilometres from Prague. Local Chateau is an attractive stop for tourists who pass by.
In the town Chleby near Nymburk in the Region of Central-Bohemia, there is a zoo of the same name. It is easily accessible from Prague by car, mostly thanks to near the D11 highway.
This is another from Central Bohemian towns which will probably grow into a beauty. But at this moment it looks rather as if a bomb went off there.
