Between Adrspach and Teplice nad Metuji in the eastern part of Bohemia, there is one of the most beautiful places in the country. Water, wind and frost formed in the course of million years this beautiful rocky town we take you to today.
The Broumov region is not one of the places where beautiful monuments can be seen. The Adrspasske rocks nearby are very popular among tourists, where in free days and in good weather are overcrowded. Broumov itself is views as the city at the end of the world.. Already in the charter of of 1213, the area is characterized as a "terrible landscape in the open wilderness" and I believe that some would describe it similarly today.
If you are heading for a trip to our highest mountains, Spindleruv Mlyn is one of the best bases at any time of a year. It lies at the very end of the road, which leads from Vrchlabi through the valley upstream of the Elbe river to the foot of the Krkonose Mountains (Giant Mountains).
Under Certova Mountain in the Giant Mountains, the mountain town of Harrachov is situated on the Mumlava River. The owner of the local estate - Count Jan Harrach - brought the first skis to Bohemia in the 19th century and the first winter sports took place here soon.
For the second time we will stop in the highest Czech mountains – Krkonoše – to climb up the highest mountain. You will learn where to start, how to prepare and what to expect from a long climb and a ridge trek during which you will pass some of the highest Czech peaks.
Snow conditions are not ideal in the Czech Republic at the moment, but most people are attracted to the mountains anyway. So today let yourself be lured into Špindlerův Mlýn.
On the western edge of Janske Laze, in the direction of Cerny Dul, another tree trail was opened one year ago. It is the third wooden lookout tower going up into the clouds in the Czech Republic. Similar buildings are enjoying popularity in Germany.
You ride down the hill to the valley. Surrounding you are green hills. White buildings of local automobile factory brighten you. These are the halls of Skoda car company. Since 2012, gearboxes have been produced there. However, we go further into the center. The main landmark in Vrchlabi is St Vavrinec church. Its belfry hardly fits within the lens cope of a camera.
Do you wonder where to spend an Advent weekend? Should you be near the Krkonose mountains or somewhere around, visit the quiant village of Ponikla. There are two amazing places close to each other. You will feel the amazing historic atmosphere of the life of our ancestors who lived a harsh life in the mountains. You will learn what they did, what worries and joys they experienced. You will learn that te life was often complicated but locals knew how to enjoy it.
