Ještěd is a destination for hikers and nature lovers all year round. The Ještěd transmitter (designed by architect Karel Hubáček) with its well-known mountain hotel and restaurant stands on the peak at a height of 1012 m. The structure takes the shape of a hyperboloid under rotation with a circular floorplan and a height of 100 m. It attracts attention from afar and engenders astonishment when seen from its base.
The journey up the hill in the Ještěd funicular operated by Czech Railways can also be a further attraction. In winter, the slopes of Ještěd are a favourite place for skiers (www.skijested.cz).
