The Nová Paka area

Nová Paka

The Nová Paka area, a paradise of petrified trees, is found in a landscape divided by valleys and long ridges. It will charm you with its red soil, the shapes of its hills that hide fairy treasures such as precious stones and pieces of petrified plants and trees. It is a very peculiar area, existing in a way on its own, with beautiful views of the region and the nearby Krkonoše Mountains.

This is also reflected in the spiritual world full of secrets and mysteries – it is a region of artists, dreamers, eccentric people and spiritists. The centre of the area is the town of Nová Paka, first mentioned in 1357. For many centuries, the town was linked to the history of Kumburk castle as a subject town of the Kumburk dominion. First it was owned by the Vartenberks, followed by the Krušina with the most important representative being Hynek Krušina of Kumburk, a great supporter of the Hussites. In subsequent turbulent times, the dominion was held by the Berkas of Dubé, the Smiřický family and the Lords of Šternberk. To an extent, the area was also peculiar because of its folk architecture. Many log houses have been preserved. In the 19th century, transportation infrastructure started to develop and the town of Stará Paka became a major railway crossroads.
