Glass-making, stone-cutting and jewellery making

Stonecutters were first mentioned in the region as early as 400 years ago. During the last third of the 19th century, industrial cutting works started to appear and in 1884, a technical school opened in Turnov. In the late 18th century, the manufacturing of glass imitations of precious stones started to flourish in Turnov, which later gave rise to the custom jewellery industry in Jablonec nad Nisou and traditional glass-making in the Železný Brod area. These professions have mostly survived in craft workshops, where you can still see them today.
