Bohemian Paradise

Kost Plakánek

Bohemian Paradise rightly takes its name because the beautiful corner of land that lies between the towns of Turnov, Jičín and Mladá Boleslav can not be rivalled anywhere else in Bohemia. Romantic valleys and a manifold of so called rock cities are mixed with meadows and timbered houses. Bohemian Paradise is rich in medieval castles and romantic chateaus, rock viewpoints and towers offering views across the whole region.

Bohemian Paradise is the oldest protected area in the region and to add to its uniqueness it was enlisted into the UNESCO network of European and world geoparks – the first in the Czech Republic.

Bohemian Paradise - in summer

Of the numerous natural beauties that Bohemian Paradise has to offer, definitely do not miss out on the rock cities of Prachovské skály, Klokočské skály and Betlémské skály, nor the labyrinth of rocks at Hruboskalsko and Maloskalsko, or even the picturesque valleys of Podtrosecká, Jizera, Plakánek, and the dolomite caves in Bozkov. Several ponds, for example Věžický rybník and Vidlák pod Troskami and those at Jinolice are also not to be missed.

Bohemian Paradise is also a region of important historical sights. Among the most important are the chateaus and castles of Sychrov, Hrubý Rohozec, Valdštejn, Trosky, Hrubá Skála and many others. One of the preciously preserved monuments of folk architecture is Dlask Farm in Dolánky near Turnov. A number of museums also offer a historical insight to the region – in Turnov, Lomnice nad Popelkou or Železný Brod, for example. You will be led to the most important and beautiful places of Bohemian Paradise by the red markers of The Golden Footpath of Bohemian Paradise.

Bohemian Paradise is also a popular area for walking and cycling and is the cradle of Czech rock-climbing. The gentle landscape, rich in natural and historical sights, is particularly popular with families with children, who will also enjoy the interactive educational trail ‘Sedmihorky: Discover the legends of Bohemian Paradise,’ which is organised in the children´s country playground in Radvánovice near Turnov, or a tourist-train trip to the view-tower at Černá Studnice.

Bohemian Paradise - in winter

Bohemian Paradise, which is more famous as a summer tourist region, also offers plenty of choice for skiing and winter fun.

Lomnická lyžařská magistrála (Lomnice Ski Expressway)

In good snow conditions around Lomnice nad Popelkou there is the 25-kilometre-long Lomnice Ski Expressway, which offers two tracks for classic skiing and an area for skating. The ski resort also offers small well-maintained cross-country circuits 2, 3, 4 and 5 km in length. There are other cross-country routes around the top of Tábor hill.

Tábor ski resort

There is a ski tow of over 300 m long which goes almost all the way to the tourist chalet on the top of Tábor. The ski slope runs from the top station at a height of 635 m, and has an incline of 80 m. The slope is not too difficult and is particularly ideal for families with children.

Kozákov ski resort

This resort has two ski tows. The ski slopes are regularly maintained, and as they are not too difficult they are also ideal for families with children. Cars can be parked on the road right by the ski tows or in the car park on the top of Kozákov.

Struhy ski resort

This resort offers a 300-metre-long ski slope with an incline of 50 m. The resort has complete facilities for family skiing, and for children there is a rope tow free of charge. The resort also offers evening skiing.

Other smaller ski tows can be found in Semily, Líšný and Koberovy. 

Bohemian Paradise - culture and traditions

In the summer season many cultural activities are organised in various places in Bohemian Paradise. Castles and chateaus come to life with fencing tournaments, historical fairs and funfairs, theatre plays and concerts. In summer, the most important tourist attractions are connected by tourist buses.
