Settlement Jizerka – Kořenov – Vysoké nad Jizerou

Rašeliniště Jizerky, author: Jan Strakoš

Jizera Mountains 

The Jizera river springs in the Polish territory of the Jizera Mountains. The starting point of the Jizera Greenway route is the former glass settlement called Jizerka, nowadays an important summer and winter resort. Numerous tourist destinations in its vicinity are easily accessible by a network of marked hiking and biking trails. You can visit the local museum, go to the peat-bog or walk to the top of Bukovec (erupted basalt heap), which oversees the entire settlement from a height of 1005 m above sea level.

From the central car park in Jizerka we descend to the Jizera valley and further along the river to Kořenov, where you can get by train and also start the route there. At the railway station in Kořenov it is possible to visit the Museum of the Cog Railway. Along the river we reach Na Mýtě, where the Mumlava pours into the Jizera from the left. Behind the stone bridge on Mýto, the route continues along a path called Planýrka to Paseky nad Jizerou, the village of Rais's Zapadlí vlastenci (museum).

If we continued from there through a rocky valley along the river, we would have to go mostly along the A-road or on the Krkonoše cycle routes (see map no. 2, page ... - alternative route). From Paseky nad Jizerou we ascend to the ridge and following it through Sklenařice we drive to Vysoké nad Jizerou.

The reward after overcoming the climb will be the views of the Giant Mountains (Krkonoše), Ještěd or Kozákov. On the outskirts of Vysoké nad Jizerou is the impressive villa of the First Republic Czechoslovak Prime Minister Karel Kramář, which bears the influence of Russian architecture and resembles a chateau in size. Today it serves as a hotel. To diversify, we can visit the local museum in Vysoké nad Jizerou.
