THE BOHEMIAN PARADISE

Novopacko

Novopacko

The most easterly part of the Bohemian Paradise is the tourist region of Novopacko. Thanks to its red earth, the area is known as the “Bloody Region”; thanks to its unique geological phenomena it is known as the Eastern Gateway to the UNESCO Geopark; and thanks to the area’s spirtualism it is known as the region of dreamers and eccentrics. The exhibitions at the Town Museum in Nová Paka best summarize the characteristics of the Novopacko region - here you learn about all of the topics mentioned above and also about the world-famous Suchard family, the largest fossilised tree in Bohemia, the history of the beautiful Baroque monastery chapel, and much more. The Novopacko region is also of interest thanks to its timbered folk architecture in the village of Karlov, the diving centre at Rumchalpa and the Máchová trail with its views of the Krkonoše mountains and the undulating hills around Jičín.

The centre of the region is the town of Nová Paka, which was first recorded in 1357. Integral parts of the town´s history include the development of the brewery and the Mimin monastery. Another interesting feature of Nová Paka is the wooden Greek-Catholic church that was moved here in 1930 from the then Carpathian Ruthenia.
