No. of pictures: 51 pictures
In Dvůr Králové you will see animals in pavilions and paddocks as well as in open terrain. The connection of the classic zoo with the safari park, which is focused on African animals, fulfills the vision of the founder Josef Vágner. In a vast area full of animals and greenery, there are many quiet zones, children's attractions, restaurants and theme shops. You can also go on a safari with your own car, but you can only see the lions from the safari-style vehicle.

Although a small village located in the Hradec Králové region dates back to 1052, it is probably experiencing its greatest glory only now. Visitors from all over the Czech Republic come here to enjoy the unique medieval atmosphere. Dětenice is located on the road between Jičín and Mladá Boleslav, less than 70 kilometers from Prague. The village lies practically at the beginning of the beautiful Bohemian Paradise. Part of this small village is the unique Castle Resort Dětenice, which includes a Baroque castle, a brewery and a medieval tavern.
The only zoo in the Czech Republic that offers African safaris is in Dvur Kralove. Therefore, it ranks among the top in popularity and attendance. The intention of the then director Josef Vágner, who started importing African animals from his expeditions years ago, succeeded. In the vast area on the outskirts of the city, in addition to the classic zoo and safari park, which you can drive either with your own or safari car, you will also find hotel and camp accommodation, a brewery and a spa.
This regional city is an honor to its region. It is really a gem among the cities. Or, at least, it seems to be.
A little less than twenty kilometers from Hradec Kralove, the region capital, there is Jaromer, the town full of history.
Nová Paka is a town where approx. 10 thousands of people are living it is situated close to Giant Mountains.
Too many cities, what the people can remember absolutely different, does not exist. Hořice are one of them.
First time I got into Hradec was when taking pictures in the Orlicke Mountains. It fell in love with the city instantly. I get off my car, looked at the First-Republic houses facades, looked at faces of several people and I knew that I wasn’t here for the last time.
Before the inhabitants of Hradec Kralove decide go to see nature beyond their city they should explore some of their boroughs. Novy Hradec Kralove offers everything what town people look for in the Orlice and Krkonose mountains – clean nature, forests, ponds, trails for bikers. There are also trails for people on wheelchair.
Jaroměř is located in eastern Bohemia, 17 kilometers from Hradec Králové on the confluence of Labe, Úpa and Metuje. The city has the population of 12 600.
