Day trip for history and hiking lovers with a private guide
Lots of history and beautiful nature in one day…. all that with the use of train.
Come and discover rich history of medieval town of Tabor, loose yourself in labyrinth of medieval streets, and enjoy a hike in peaceful nature.
The history of Tabor is very rich: it was established in the 15th century as a fortress during the Hussite revolution. It was named after a biblical mount of Tabor in Israel, and was meant to be a commonwealth governed only by law of God.
We will learn all about this fascinating history in local Gothic Town Hall, which is a museum of this 15th century revolutionary movement, and we will also visit the famous Tabor catacombs from 16th century.
Highlight of the trip is a hike up along the Stations of the Cross to a famous pilgrimage site, breath taking Baroque Klokoty Monastery.
Next is a hike through peaceful pine forest down to the valley of Luznice river, and lunch in a local restaurant on the river bank.
This trip will show you the true countryside of the Czech Republic.
