Josefův Důl - it was grinding and glass-producing community in past, where local cattle pastured on neighbouring hillsides.
Last week we took you to the Great America quarry, the Macocha Abyss, or the Toulovcovy Maštale. Today we will continue to explore the beautiful natural places of the Czech Republic. Our next stop will be the natural volcanic rarity Soos.
The unmistakable and easy-to-spot dominant of the North Bohemian landscape is one of the most visited places in the region. And this holds true in every season. The summit is easily accessible by cable car, a network of hiking trails and abundant curves of the asphalt road. Upstairs you will be amazed at the view of the entire northern half of Bohemia, as well as the unique multifunctional rotary hyperboloid building. It's Jested.
At the confluence of the Černá and Bílá Desná rivers in the Liberec region is the town of Desná. It is by no means interesting in itself, it is worth mentioning the historic churches of the Ascension of the Lord and the Virgin Mary, Riedl's villa from 1895 and the funeral chapel. Lovers of winter sports in particular, but also cyclists and tourists will find theirs here.
The Liberec Region lies in the north of the country, on the border with Germany and Poland. The town of Liberec is also the regional center and natural center of the region. Although it is the second smallest region in its area, it has played a large role in Czech history, especially when creating trade routes.
Jakuszyce village is situated in the Jizerske Mountains but in Poland, mere six kilometers by E65 road from Harrachov to Szklarska Poreba. People who love historic landmarks will be probably disappointed but people who love relax and sport will love it there. In the summer season, bikers can make a use of a vast network of trails as well as walkers. In the winter season, high altittude and climate make the area around Jakuszyce a great place for cross-country skiers. They can ride on 100 kilometers of ski trails of varied difficulties. These cross-country tracks in Poland are connected to tracks in the Czech Republic.
If you consider yourselves fans of winter weather, you can finally after a long time enjoy true winter in the Czech Republic. Moreover, cross-country skiing is great and we recommend you a trek in the Jizerske Mountains. You would be headed from Horni Polubne to Bedrichov. This trek is of middle-difficulty. It is from 24 to 30 kilometres long (depending on what trail you choose). So how to do this?
We recommend you Semerink as a great place for a family vacation. Families with small children especially or even beginning skiers will enjoy the vast ski resort of Severak with easy slopes and many ski tows. The slopes are well maintained. There are many trails to chosoe from and to combine. Especially these are great for little children or easy-skiers. Mild slopes, and relatively short slopes are nothing fancy for experienced skiers.
A mere kilometer from the famous settlement of Hejnice in the Jizera mountains, there is another famous site - Libverda spa. Composer Carl Maria von Weber found his inspiration to write the opera of Der Freischuetz.
If freezing weather doesn't deter you and you love this sport, Bedrichov and its surroundings is the perfect place to be. It is easy to reach by public transportation (from Jablonec nad Nisou or Liberec) or by private means of transportation.
