Wandering through the nature of the Jizera Mountains

You can visit the “Jizerky”, as they are familiarly called not only by the locals but also by visitors, all year round. Naturally, the main seasons are summer and winter. Your breath will be taken away in winter by the romantic snow-clad valleys and hills studded with log cabins, in summer by the deep forests and numerous waterfalls that have appeared since the spring melt, mountain meadows and peat bogs. Nature in the Jizera Mountains is very varied and is home to many protected species of plants and animals. With a little luck you could come across some of them while wandering through the Jizera countryside on your family holiday.

The Jizera Mountains - it isn´t just beautiful North Bohemian countryside. On your "journey of exploration", whether it be a family holiday or a romantic weekend, you will come across historical monuments, well-known and now almost symbolic lookout towers crowning many of the hills as well as regional gastronomy, craft markets and many regional events which bring the local life closer to you. You will also have the unique opportunity of meeting the locals, who will be more than happy to talk about local traditions and habits and will also share some tales about the mountains with you.

History of the region

The Jizera Mountains are interesting not only for their natural beauty and sports possibilities, but also for their complex history. As was common in areas close to the border, in the past the area was ruled by the Czech crown and also by German lords.


The Glass Industry and Production

We can find traces of glass production in the Jizera Mountains from as early as the 14th century. That is when the first glass workshop was established. But the real glass boom in the area was in the 16th century, when many glass factories were set up. They brought not only an increase in the population in otherwise uninhabited areas, but also the cutting down of forests. Wood was an essential element in the production of glass.



The Jizera Mountains are the northernmost range in the Czech Republic and are situated between the Lusatian Mountains and the Giant Mountains. They take their name from the River Jizera, which rises on the slope of the highest mountain, Smrk. Plateaus surrounded by granite hills and numerous peat bogs are characteristic of the area. Granite is the main rock here.



The nature of the Jizera Mountains is very specific and dazzles visitors with its unique beauty.
