Welcome to the Liberec Region

Technical and industrial heritage, traditional arts and crafts, castles, chateaux, important places of worship – all this characterises the mountainous region full of rivers, crystal clear waterfalls, ponds, rocks, high peaks and natural beauty. 

The Liberec Region lies in the north of the Czech Republic and is the country’s second smallest region after the capital city of Prague. The region is surrounded by Germany and Poland to the north, the Hradec Králové Region to the east, the Ústí nad Labem Region to the West and the Central Bohemian Region to the south. Part of the Krkonoše National Park is in the Liberec Region and there are also five protected landscape areas in the region: Kokořín Area, Lusatian Mountains, Central Bohemian Uplands, Jizera Mountains and Bohemian Paradise, which means that there are plenty of nature reserves and phenomena. It also boasts many educational trails and you can take in its beauty from more than two dozen lookout towers.

There are also many water reservoirs. The bigger ones include the drinking water reservoir Josefův Důl and others include Fojtka, Harcov and Mlýnice.
