Information for visitors
Interesting facts The Golden Trail of the Bohemian Paradise
This hiking trail was created in the middle of the 19th century thanks to the Club of Czech Tourists and the activities of the famous Czech traveler Vojtěch Náprstek. However, the name did not appear until 1937. Over the years, the trail has undergone several changes, as sand was mined here, roads were built and the soil changed.
The golden trail is marked in red and looks like this:
Jičín - Railway - Tábor - Kozákov - Besedice - Malá Skála - Frýdštejn - Turnov - Valdštejn - Hrubá Skála - Ruins - Dolní Mlýn - Nebákov - Kost - Reservoirs - Drábské světničky - Valečov - Mnichovo Hradiště - Bakov nad Jizerou - Mladá Boleslav
