Jablonec nad Nisou is a picturesque town in northern Bohemia with a population of about 45,000. The town lies in the green valley of the Nisa River at an altitude of 500 m above sea level.
It is easy to find your way in the town centre, because it consists of three squares built one above the other. People have admired the fragile beauty of the town’s glass production and costume jewellery industry for years. There are many interesting places to visit and many houses with outstanding and unique architecture – most frequent are neo-renaissance, art nouveau and functionalist styles.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, the unique town dam was built just outside the town centre. It has become a technical monument which serves as an attractive recreation area. Jablonec is an appealing prospect to those who wish to have an active and varied holiday. Visitors to the town can enjoy the town’s facilities and its culture and history, while also having many opportunities to undertake sports and various outdoor activities in the beautiful Jizera Mountains.
The mountains are alluring in any season. In summer, they are a wonderful place for cycling and trekking and in winter they provide the venue for both cross country and down hill skiing. In Jablonec, you are only few kilometres from the main mountain resorts of Bedrichov, Severak, Spicak, Jizerka and Harrachov. The Czech capital city, Prague, is only an hour away by car or bus. We wish you a relaxing and enjoyable holiday filled with many fond memories of Jablonec.
