In the form of photogallery we bring you well-known places of these romantic mountains which are filled with log cabins and picturesque nooks. We hope our photos will be an inspiration for your trip. The area located in the North of the Czech Republic is dominated by Ještěd and is also filled with many observation posts. Many recently built blacktop bicycle tracks, i.e. those leading around the water reservoirs, serve also as in-line tracks or tracks for wheelchairs. Tourism is procured by Jizerská magistrála and railway/cog railway leading from Tanvald through Kořenov to Harrachov. To experience the calm of the local nature you should visit the village of Jizera known for its freezing cold temperatures.

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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
Liberec is another important stop in our tour de Bohemia. A university city is famous and infamous for the world championship in cross-country skiing. It is a historical place completely independent on its surrounding.
Tourists may get to Frydstejn right from the town of the same name or from Mala Skala, a close village. The village is called the heart of Cesky Raj.
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.
