The Semily area

The landscape of the Semily area has been largely affected by its geological past. The rock folding that happened between two geomorphologic eras, the Devonian and Carboniferous periods, followed by malaphyre volcanic activity, set the foundations of a colourful geological profile and later provided findings of precious stones and petrified plants.

Kozákov hill – the guard hill of Bohemia Paradise and today’s highest regional peak with an exceptional view – became active. The waters from the Jizerské hory and western Krkonoše Mountains took a long time to cut their way to the lower Bohemian Cretaceous Basin. Eventually, the Jizera River created a unique canyon between the towns of Semily and Železný Brod. The river’s power was later used by commercial entities and the textile and glass-making industries started to develop in the valley. Therefore, the region not only has beautiful nature, but also many technological sights, such as old factories, unique bridges and tunnels. The centre of the area is Semily, the town of games and toys with colourful surroundings.
