Dar friend, family and followers,
let me give you some hint for not only family holiday in our beautiful mountain area Krkonoše (Giant mountains).
We have spend great week up north and I truly believe that this was amazing time also for our sons, who enjoyed too. They are soo active till now, they have walked tens of Kms and took some tent and got such a apatite that I was cooking all the time something. Specially Carlitos, the little one, he became walking very well, climbing even better and eating on his own, since I was too slow to feed him 🙂
So which places I am suggesting to you to go and see.
Location for accomodation: I would suggest you Trutnov, if you are bz car, as many families will be, you can easily reach many interesting places within radius of 25 Km which means 20-30 min drive, Pleasure. Trutnov is nice little town, where you can enjoy everything like in a city but still being in the nature. It is also junction for busses and trains, so if you do not want to drive or you want to use bicycle or motorbike, you can easily take train or bus from there and cycle just in your chosen destination.
Mill Dřevíček = beautiful old mill with still functioning machine for milling, The guide is able to not only tell you whole story about the process, but also demonstrate you the milling process. Eduardo did not want to leave the performance. He was astonished 🙂
Weaving Museum (Dům pod Jasanem) = another great and authentic museum with hand on training how to weave. It is small home based museum where the owner has 5 kids of hers, she makes very nice ceramic and other craft stuff and her house is very cozy. From Trutnov is like 10 min ride. For kids she has prepared as a guide our famous book (Krtek a Kalhotky) so kids can easily follow whole process. I love that, I tried how to weave same as Edie. He could be good weaver I think.
Jasné Lázně together with cable car trip to Černá Hora = I believe that this trip would appreciate everybody who loves mountains not only in summer but also in the winter time. We choose summer for now because of our kids but I saw that they are well prepared also for winter. Janske lazne are small spa city where you can relax, take some ice cream and refresh yourself in the several restaurants. It is lovely place to see and take lunch. After you can take a cable car which will take you up the Cerna hora where you can visit watch tower and after follow through the reservation of KRNAP (Krkonose National Park) = it is very beautiful place to go if there is nice weather you can see far far to the nature to Poland and Germany. This hill has 1299 m above the see level. After you can continue around on the short walk of about 3 km which will take you to the peat bog/morse. Very nice walk. Since Eduardo loves water and forest he was very happy about this trip. He was constantly bathing some brunches in the streams alongside the path and listening singing birds etc. Carlitos was happy too, because Carlos was carrying him in the back carrier = this tip is at least one day.
Merkur Museum = for everybody who loves LEGO kind of games, logical and inventive, then this place is exactly for you. Carlos together with his sons got lost there for an hour just playing and ensambling different machines, from iron peaces and screws and nuts. This museum is made for you to have rough idea what was the story about, who invented this game and what everything possible and impossible you can made out of it. There you can find also beautiful iron city with moving trains. For bad weather great think to do with your kids and also as adult.
Adršpach (Teplicko adršpašské skály) = Whole world is comming to see this. The STONE CITY. It si wonderful place to go and see. There are different stone monumets, storeis around. The road around has around 3.5 Km, so if Eduardo managed you will also and during the way you will manage around 600 stairs. Lookes too much, no…you will not feel that. There are soo many beautiful wonders, that you will not recognize that you have walked that much. This is beautiful half day trip. I recomed this to everybody.
So I hope that this post will be usefull for everybody who is going to travel for one week to the krkonose region and I will add here also our family album, so you can see which kind of places were worth to visit as we did.
