Traditional region

Bohemian Switzerland

Fusion of two cultures living next to each other – Czech and German – brought a Czech architectonic rarity, so-called semi-timbered house, into being. Beautiful wooden buildings, that immediately enchant your senses, enthuse you with their colourfulness, specific construction and segmented space. There is 1500 of such houses preserved in Bohemian Switzerland and once a year a so-called Day of semi—timbered houses is held, when you can take a look at these beautiful houses and explore them „from the cellar to the attic“.

Enjoy untraditional folk architecture and take delight in both originality and genius of the Czech craft same time.
You can really savour the region thanks to local culinary specialities, traditional methods and ingredients. Let your senses flow in the unmistakeable fragrance and taste of local cuisine and enjoy.
