Discover the beautiful surroundings of your holiday home in East Bohemia! You will discover beautiful green hilly landscapes, meadows, forests and mountainous areas here. There are many protected landscape areas and (national) nature reserves, where you still encounter original forests and rare flora and fauna. The region has a well-established network of walking and cycling routes to get in touch with nature. For nature lovers and active tourists, there is plenty to discover from our holiday homes!
It's too much to list them all, but we've highlighted a few of them: at the unique Rock Cities of Adrspach and Teplice (Adrspassko-teplické skály), you'll see a labyrinth of gorges and ravines and bizarre rock formations. This sandstone plateau, in the highlands of Broumov, is the largest nature reserve in the Czech Republic, and is a major attraction. Then there are the rock walls of Broumov, a long ridge with sandstone rock towns. And then there is the Protected Landscape Reserve of the Iron Mountains (Zelezné hory), and the Protected Landscape Reserve of the Eagle Mountains (Orlické hory). These areas attract many mountaineers and hikers. Water sports are also possible on the lakes, such as the Rozkos and Pastviny reservoirs in the Eagle Mountains.
