A barrier-free access road from the car park to the summit and an all-year operation makes this one of the most visited tourist destinations in the east of the Krkonose mountains. If you add the resort of Cerna Hora, where you may do winter and summer sports, Janske Lazne is a great place for leisure.

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.
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.
Liberec lies in the north of Bohemia and is a statutory town with approximately 104,000 inhabitants. The town is abundantly frequented during the winter season. For the rest of the year, people are mainly driving to the aquapark or to the IQLANDIA Liberec planetarium.
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.
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.
A climb on the highest Czech mountain should do every patriot at least once in lifetime. Sněžka is a point of interest mostly in summer but in winter this small Czech Everest is even more enchanting, isn’t it…?
Should you like skiing, snowboarding, or cross-country skiing, consider a stay at Prichovice, a mountain village which belongs to Korenov town. The former is situated on the borderline of the Jizerske and Krkonose mountain. It is close to Harrachov, and Rokytnice nad Jizerou. The E65 road runs there. You can find accommodation at some of local timbered cabins.
