Jizera Mountains in Summer I.
heading (paragraph): Hills
No. of pictures: 41 pictures

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.

CZ, Jilemnice – The Town of Saint Lawrence
heading (paragraph): Cities
No. of pictures: 42 pictures

Another popular city in the foothills of the Giant Mountains is Jilemnice. Compared to Vrchlabí, its size and population are half the size of the city. In the local chateau you will find the Jilemnice Museum in the Giant Mountains, the revitalized chateau park is open to the public. Saint Lawrence is the patron saint of this city. It is also one of the saints from the sculpture on Masaryk Square, right next to the stone fountain. The Baroque church is also dedicated to Saint Lawrence - an unmistakable building on the way to the Curious Alley, where perhaps every tourist is heading. A mountain elm, a crest tree of the town of Jilemnice, grows at the lower entrance to the Krkonoše-style timbered buildings.
