Just as the mountains lie in close proximity to Jablonec, so too are there a number of opportunities for swimming and doing other water sports here. Not only can you swim in beautifully clean water directly within the city, but you can also partake of a number of other water sports ranging from canoeing to windsurfing and on to paddleboarding. The Jablonec Reservoir, known locally as the Jablonec SEA, is the largest urban area of water in Central Europe. All it will take is just one visit for you to know why we are so proud of it.
