The historical building of the museum has several floors full of lace products and works of art. Only the expert's eye knows what kind of lace there is. The methods of lace-making are quite a lot. The lace may be sewn, bobbin, crocheted, knitted, embroidered or machine-made, and each steady pattern has its specific name. Where the lace-making technique of the Venetians once discovered, it is not documented, but the lace has been cultivated in terms of technique and patterns.

At the foothills of the Orlické Mountains, visit the small town of Vamberk, which is famous for its bobbin lace. Perhaps you will be amused that one of its district goes by the name Peklo (Hell). Also, the mummy, which you may in the Broumov Monastery, comes from this place.
When young Count Ervin Kinsky lost his fondness of former chateau, now called Stary Zamek, he intended to built a representative residence for the family. The construction of Novy Zamek took place between the years 1829-1833. The old Baroque-style chateau with two stories is separated from the gardens by royal road.

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.
This regional city is an honor to its region. It is really a gem among the cities. Or, at least, it seems to be.
