People who continue to perpetuate the sporting traditions established by Tyrš can be found in almost every town and city. In its day, the Jablonec Sokolovna was one of the largest gymnasiums in Bohemia! The monumental neo-renaissance building has been used for various physical activities since 1898. It is surrounded by the substantial Tyrš Gardens, which the local Beautification Association purchased the land for in 1884. It is located in the centre of the city, just 150 m from the embarkation point for the tram to Liberec and 500 m from the railway station. In addition to physical activities, the Sokolovna also offers accommodation which is suitable for a less demanding clientele. More information is available online at
