  • Barborka - wooden lookout tower
    Barborka - wooden lookout tower. The nearly 14 metre high wooden observation tower near the town of Horní Raškovice was built and opened to the public in 2004. The observation tower is situated near the Raškovice forest and in the interesting natural area of the former Raškovice quarry. Visitors can use two lookout platforms to view the surrounding landscape; 47 stairs lead to the upper platform at the height of 10 metres. The tower offers views of the Železné Mts., the peaks of the Krkonoše and Orlické Mts., and the Polabí (Elbe River basin).

  • Kunětická hora - castle
    Kunětická hora - castle. Archaeological research dates the original construction to the mid-14th century. The greatest reconstruction was undertaken by the Pernštein family in the years 1491-1548, which resulted in the creation of a massive double-towered castle with an ingenious fortification system. At the end of the Thirty Years War the castle was severely damaged by Swedish troops. Partial reconstruction of the castle didn’t occur until the 1920’s; the work was designed by D. Jurkoviče and continued after the conclusion of the Second World War. With a little bit of luck visitors can see all the way to the ridge of the Krkonoše Mts. from this dominant landmark in the Pardubice area.
    Address: Staré Hradiště
