The Turnov area

Zámek Hrubý Rohozec

This is the area through which the first settlers came to the region. Evidence of their presence was found above overhangs between sandstone formations. More than ten thousand years ago, people were familiar with the Jizera River. The Celts named it Isora – a rapid river – and the Slavs renamed it the Jizera. It has been a centre of life for a very long time. First, trade routes led through the valley and later settlements were founded here.

When you get to the Turnov area, the Jizera looks different. It leaves shaded valleys and canyons that is has carved over millions of years and enters a more open landscape of rock formations. Near Mnichovo Hradiště, the river leaves sandstone plates (Hruboskalsko, Maloskalsko, Drábovna, Příhrazské skály, rocks on Mužský, Suché skály, Klokočské skály) and meanders towards the south, passing through an open landscape. The centre and heart of Bohemian Paradise is Turnov, a town with a long and rich tradition of stone processing and jewellery making. It is a good starting point for trips to numerous interesting places in nature and many remarkable castles, chateaux and other monumental sites that were built by people.
