Lidice This village, the name of which became a symbol of Fascist despotism in World War II, lies 20 km west of Prague and eight km from Kladno. Lidice is first mentioned in chronicles of the Zbraslav abbot, Petr Zitavsky, as being "held" by a rich Prague citizen, Pavlík, around the year l300. The oldest public building was St. Martin's church (1352). It was destroyed in the Hussite wars, but Utraquist priests were preaching here as late as in the 16th century. It was again destroyed during the Thirty years' War, and Grand Duchess Marie Anna of Tuscany had a new, Baroque church built which was restyled several times in the following years. The museum building is located in the neighbourhood of the eastern wing of the colonnade, approximately 100 metres from the main road Prague - Kladno. In its close neighbourhood there spreads the reverent area and the Rose Garden. The Lidice Gallery is placed in the middle of the new Lidice, in the distance of approximately 500 metres from the museum. The museum was built in 1962 according to a project of an architect František Marek. The multi-medial exposition of The Lidice Memorial will offer a very emotive entrance to the history that any village within the protectorate Bohemia and Moravia could have suffered. The pictures of the old times, that became alive on the walls of the labyrinth of past, come out from the latest historical findings. They bring the World War II and single human destinies closer.

While in the reign of Charles IV. city Slaný obtained a host of privileges, the Renaissance period has contributed several stately residences to the town, including the Modletický Mansion and Ungelt. Deprived of its royal town status under the Habsburg monarchs, Slaný became a tributary town.

Zoopark Zájezd Animals (for example caracals, monkeys and half-apes, chameleons, kangaroos, etc.) have been bred in the municipality of Zájezd since 1998. In 2006 we established the beneficiary association Zoopark Zájezd. There you will see sunning groups of three kinds of lemurs, kangaroos, and long-tailed monkeys or the camel Ája, for example. The aviaries and runs are built mainly from natural materials and the effort was aimed at using to the maximum extent what was offered by the original areas of the local land so that the nature of the local landscape was not affected. Picnic blankets, coloured pencils, paper and toys are available (not only) to children in the zoo complex. The aim is to offer not only the “zoo” as you know it, but also an ideal place for relaxation where you can return even several times a week, if you like.

Skryjská Lakes Skryje Lakes (Skryjská jezírka) are two little lakes in the District of Rokycany in the Plzeň Region in the Czech Republic. They are situated at an elevation of 270 m. They are only several meters distant from each other and each of them has a length of approximately 30 m, a width of 10 m and an area of approx. 150 m². The Zbiroh Stream (Zbirožský potok), which is a tributary of the Berounka, runs through the little lakes. The upper little lake is situated just below the Skryje Waterfall (Skryjský vodopád) and is partially rock-bound and access to it is partially open. The lower one is situated among the trees several meters below. The little lakes, the waterfall, the stream and the neighbourhood are protected within the Nature Reserve Jezírka (Přírodní rezervace Jezírka) which is a protected area of an area of 59.5 ha within the Křivoklátsko Protected Landscape Area (CHKO Křivoklátsko).

SVATY JAN POD SKALOU (Saint John under the Cliff) with its abundance of natural scenery and historical landmarks, is one of the most picturesque villages in the Cesky Kras (Czech Karst caves) natural protected area. The history of the village dates back to the end of the 9th century when, according to legend, the first Czech Christian hermit, Ivan, settled down in a cave under a large cliff.

THE SAINT IVAN LEGEND The hermit Ivan, worshipped as a saint, lived in local travertine caves, which have been preserved up to the present day. Ivan was the son of the Charvatian duke Gostimysl. Legend has it that he turned away from secular life and retreated to this silent landscape where he lived for 42 years. He liked the local valley so much that he decided to live there. God sent him a doe to feed him with milk. The hermit was tempted by demons and decided to leave the area. On the day of his departure, however, St. John the Baptist appeared on the hillock under the St. John Cliff and gave him a wooden crosslet, which helped Ivan expel the demons. The legend further narrates about the hermit’s meeting with the first Czech Christian duke and leader Borivoj during his hunt for bears in the local deep forest. The duke accidentally wounded Ivan’s doe. The injured doe brought Borivoj to the hermit’s cave where she later died. The duke was sorry for killing Ivan’s provider and invited the hermit to Tetin, his nearby castle, where he offered him a place to live. Ivan, however, refused the generous offer and returned back to his cave. Before his death, he sent the duke tidings from St. John the Baptist: ‘It was you whom God ordered through St. John the Baptist to consecrate this place after my death as a church in honor of the Virgin Mary and the St. Cross, and to designate St. John the Baptist as its patron saint.’ According to the legend, after Ivan’s death, Borivoj built a chapel which in the 11th century fell under the administration of the Benedictine monastery (the Ostrov Monastery, located on an island in Vltava River, south of Prague).

Beroun The royal town of Beroun is located about 30 km southwest of Prague, at the junction of our trading capital of the western parts of the country and Germany. The old trade route replaced highway D5 and the railway linking the city with Prague, Pilsen and Rakovník. The town lies at the confluence of the Berounka Litavka and entices you to visit not only for its historical monuments and rich cultural and sporting offer, but also its beautiful surroundings. It is starting in two protected areas - the Bohemian Karst and Křivoklátsko.

Hamous farm Zbečno (15 km)

Everybody who visits Hamous’ Homestead (Hamousův statek) sometime is certainly surprised at the location and size of the building. It is situated right opposite St. Martin Church in the village with its history dating back to the times of the first Premyslides (Přemyslovci). In the fiftieths many homesteads with vaulted entrance gateways to the yard, countless little cottages of various craftsmen or small farmers were still in existence in the village. Unfortunately, the village has changed so much during years that the only things in the village which remember the national architecture era are only the church with the rectory and the already mentioned Hamous’ Homestead.



Tetín Tetín historically belongs to the oldest villages in the Czech Republic. The place was settled as early as the Palaeolithic Period and the Hillfort Period.  The beginnings of Tetín are connected with Teta, Krok’s daughter, in legends, but archaeological research dates back to the middle of the 10th century. At the beginning of the 10th century there was a princess’ wooden farmstead, which was the widow’s seat of the Princess St. Ludmila, who was murdered there in 921. In the 11th and 12th centuries there was the seat of Tetín District which administrated the entire Podbrdsko (the area at the foot of the Brdy Mountains). Tetín is mentioned on the foundation charter of Vyšehrad Chapter. In 1288 the royal master of the hounds had his seat there. Towards the end of the 13th century the castle was rebuilt to become a seat of Premyslide bastards. In 1321 the castle was held by Stephen of Tetín, who sold Tetín to the emperor Charles IV. He then connected the Tetín dominions to Karlštejn.

Týřov Týřov Castle was probably built soon after the royal Křivoklát Castle, in possession of which it also was. The first written report is of 1249. The castle built after the fashion of French forts on a high headland above the Mže River (Berounka River) was a unique fortress not only in Bohemia, but also in Central Europe. Unlike the other then castles, it was capable of active defence by cross bombarding the enemy in the foreground from above from nine round towers. It was protected by the steep slopes and the system of deep moats against an unexpected assault. In addition to the towers, the castle also had two prismatic bastions. They entered the castle over the drawbridge and through the gate on the eastern side. Put in pawn, it was falling into disrepair from the Hussite Wars and towards the end of the 15th century it was unfit for habitation. The ruin with a fascinating view of the Berounka valley is accessible taking the marked path from Skryje.

Praga The Praga car museum was established in 1957. The main aim of establishing the museum was to map the history of our largest car factory and, in fact, in doing so also the history of the Czech automotive industry which belonged to the European top in its times. The museum is mentioned on all lists of world museums and is rated by the Cultural Committee of UNESCO as the third world’s largest brand collection which exceeds the framework of the Czech Republic due to its extent and is a picture of our famous history which has been successfully preserved for next generations in this way and of which the Czech Republic can rightly be proud.

Okoř (29 km)

Hazmurk If we regard Milešovka to be the queen of the Central Bohemian Uplands (České středohoří), the king can only be Hazmburk. The towers of this ruin belong to dominants of the downstream countryside round the Ohře River which are not easy to overlook and you can see them from a distance of up to several dozens of kilometres. They rise on the top of the sheer basalt massif and remind of the past fame of the impregnable Gothic castle. According to archaeological findings, the hill reaching a height of 418 m was settled by stroked pottery people as early as the 5th millennium BC. The creation of the castle is wrapped in mystery.

Castle Červený Újezd The private building has been named after the municipality in which it is situated, i.e. the Castle of Červený Újezd, and was created in the years of 2001-2002. The intention was to build in our style a historicizing complex based on traditional craft-based procedures and meeting demands of the present times. You will see the originals and copies of typical tools, instruments and equipment of the Czech countryside of the last century and the century before last, supplemented with rural painted furniture, traditional craft workshops, a knight’s hall, a tavern with Old Bohemian food and beverages as well as castle antiques in the museum. The new interiors were created by local craftsmen. So if you just like we like dreaming and like history, good food and drink, arrive to convince yourselves of how our intention succeeded. The complex of the country buildings or the open-air museum, if you wish, is situated in the gardens and is, just like the castle museum, an example of the country life of the past times. You can take a close look at the windmill, bell-tower, granary, small wine cellar, chalet, charcoal pile, or old wood cutter there. Most buildings have accessible interiors with an example of furnishing, tools and equipment typical of them.
