Frýdlant Region (Frýdlantsko) is a remote, and thus tranquil, region. It is practically detached from the Czech Republic by the Jizera Mountains, whose steep northern hillside slopes down into the Frýdlantsko Uplands. Frýdlantsko is nestled into its own spur into Poland and the Jizera Mountains in such a way that it has served to filter out any “industrial” visitors. Those who come to visit the region can expect to see a picturesque dell with timber structures, undamaged countryside, and fascinating historical monuments, of which the most famous are Frýdlantsko Castle and Frýdlantsko Chateau.
As mentioned earlier, Frýdlantsko is situated in a spur north of the Jizera Mountains, which is historically linked to the district because both territories belonged to the owners of lands in Frýdlantsko and Liberec. The overwhelming majority of the Frýdlantsko spur forms the Frýdlantsko uplands, a specific type of landscape that was formed by a continental glacier. The peaks of these uplands range from 350 to 450 metres in height and between them there is a deep valley. The forested Jindřichov Ridge and the uplands’ highest mountain, Angel’s Peak (Andělský vrch) with a height of 572 metres above sea level, tower over the district. The most significant river in this region is the Smědá, which runs from the Jizera Mountains into the wide valley. Its current flows to the north, into Poland, and at the border it already has the character of a lowland river with numerous meanders and blind branches.
In the Frýdlantsko spur very few paths are marked, but with the help of a decent map it is possible to take pleasant walks through meadows, valleys and hills that are not difficult to manage, and enjoy the local countryside comfortably. There are also attractive tourist attractions here, especially important historical and sacred monuments and interesting rustic architecture. Those who long for a more challenging hike need only set off for the nearby beech forests of the Jizera Mountains, or to the district of Smrk, where rocky terrain with lookout towers, wild waterfalls and spectacular views await hikers.
In Frýdlantsko visitors will find well-organised and clearly marked bike paths with characteristic names such as Smuggler’s Trail, Easy Trail, and the like. They run through several picturesque areas, mostly over somewhat hilly terrain, along highways, and through forests and fields. These paths are therefore excellent for undemanding cyclists, or for families with children. It’s worth taking a pleasant ride through the picturesque Frýdlantsko Uplands or through Hell (Peklo) National Park; those looking for a greater challenge can head for the inclines of the beechwood forested Jizera Mountains.
