Orlicke Mountains

The Orlicke Mountains are an area about hundred and fifty kilometers north-east of Prague on the border with Poland. It is an area that has many attractions to offer: the beautiful and undisturbed countryside is ideal for hiking, horse-riding, cycling, as well as skiing in winter. The towns in the region offer a wide range of museums and cultural events. For example: the oldest film festival in the Czech Republic. You can also visit many historic sites such as a chain of military fortifications from the 1930s, which are open to the public. The area of the Orlicke Mountains also includes several interesting castles.
