Havlíčkův Brod region

Havlíčkův BrodA region popular with poets, painters and writers. A region where the Železné Hory mountain range in the north crosses the Bohemian- Moravian Highlands and where you can find not only wooded hills, but also rocky and romantic valleys that witnessed the rattling of Hussite weapons.

The Havlíčkův Brod region is guarded by the huge castles of Lipnice nad Sázavou and Ledeč nad Sázavou. Above the Sázava River, there is also the town of Světlá, famous for glassmaking, where the recently reconstructed castle offers rooms for hire. If you prefer to admire history from a distance and favour modern facilities (or a combination of both), you will be satisfied for example at Conference Hotel Luna, which has undergone many changes in the past years: the capacity of the meeting rooms has increased, an entrance to the interior for two cars has been added, the number of rooms and their quality have increased and a huge terrace with a view of the pond has been built. Old and new intermingle at Chateau Hostačov, where you will be offered top quality gastronomy including topical Baroque dinners and where you can play discgolf in the neighbouring park on a course whose designer is the legendary missionary of this sport, Jussi Meresmaa. You can also use the park for the team game Treasure Hunt. You can expect five-star luxury at the Chateau Herálec

hotel, where you will be pampered in the style Spa by L’Occitane and where regal comfort will be provided. A more folksy, however, no less attractive, approach can be found in Lipnice nad Sázavou, where the legendary character Soldier Švejk was born.

There are, of course, more possibilities – come and see why the Havlíčkův Brod region mesmerised Jaroslav Hašek, Karel Havlíček Borovský, Jan Zrzavý and Bohuslav Reynek.
