Holany is located around 9km south-west of Česká Lípa. It lies in picturesque landscape of Máchův kraj, in a region with many ponds.

Holany was founded around 1200, but the first records of a village date back to the 14th century. In the reign of Charles IV Holany became a town. It is interesting that Emperor Joseph II spent three nights in the town during its preparations for the expected war between Austria and Prussia.

The most interesting monument of Holany is the Baroque Church of St. Mary Magdalene. Timbered houses in Holany date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. They are good examples of rural architecture.

You will find various ruins of fortresses and castles in the nearby surroundings, such as Jiljov, Vřísek, Milčany, Vítkovec or Chudý Hrádek. There are also many natural monuments and therefore the region is a popular destination of hikers and cyclists. Nearby ponds invite you to have a swim, to do water sports, to fish or just to have a rest.
