Tachov-Stříbro Region

The region surrounding the town of is a part of the Czech Republic that is not overcrowded with tourists. This is somewhat unjust for the entire district offers a wide variety of important historical monuments and natural points of interest. Much of the history of the Czech state originated in towns such as Tachov, Bor, Planá and Stříbro. In the area surrounding the forested valleys of the Bohemian Forest, you can no longer hear the rhythmic clacking of water mills, nor can you encounter miners who have come above ground after a long day of extracting silver and lead. However, you can experience just how tranquil this district has been for several decades, unaffected by tourism. In general, tourists only pass through this area as they travel along the E50 international highway. One direction takes them to Pilsen and Prague, while the other takes them to Rozvadov, home to one of the busiest Czech-German border crossings.

Settlement of the area dates back to prehistoric times. However, written accounts that mention individual sites of the region at length date back to the 12th century. The royal town of Stříbro was founded in the late 13th century. The Kladruby Cloister is a very significant monument in Czech history. In the 14th century the district comprised three towns, three castles and over a hundred villages. Several important battles of the Hussite Wars took place throughout the Tachov region. The fact that in the early 20th century towns such as Stříbro, Bor and Stráž were home to far more Germans than Czechs best documents the region’s strong connection with neighbouring Germany.

Before the Second World War, the Czech government decided to build concrete strongholds that were to protect the Czechs against the expansion of fascist Germany. Although several of these sad monuments were destroyed, you can still find several dozen of them throughout the region. The cross-border region fell to Germany in 1939. Following the forced post-war displacement of Germans, it came back into Czech hands. To this day, the violent resettlement of German citizens remains the subject of numerous property ownership disputes.

The town of Tachov is the centre of the region. The Bohemian Forest, which extends all the way to Domažlice, forms a natural border with neighbouring Germany. The deep forested valley and tall mountains are among our greatest natural treasures. The Museum of the Bohemian Forest is situated in Tachov.


Hiking enthusiasts can find a wealth of footpaths and nature trails throughout the entire region. Among the more interesting of these is the so-called long-distance trail. It starts in Mariánské Lázně, runs through Planá and Stříbro, and ends by the Hracholusky Dam. One of the most impressive tourist trails runs from the Kos Stream Valley to its confluence with the Mže River. It then extends further to the former Křínov Mill and the confluence with the Hostičkov Stream. No less interesting is the Hradiště Hill trail. It runs from Konstantinový Lázně and takes tourists to the unique locality of Hradiště. The Šipín nature trail starts near Okrouhlé Hradiště and runs through a natural park to the Úterský Stream.


A dense network of bike paths runs through the entire region. Among the most interesting of these are those which run from Bezdružic to the ruins of Gutštejn, a Gothic castle, or to Sheep Peak (Ovčí vrch), where a peasant uprising was brutally quelled in the late 17th century. The area is also home to the “Arterial Road” (Magistrála) of the Bohemian Forest, which starts in Cheb and ends in Domažlice. Another noteworthy trail runs from Stříbro through Cebiv, Černošín and Svojšín.

Winter tourism

Although the area does not boast giant mountains, in the winter months it is very popular with undemanding skiers and families for whom small and uncrowded ski resorts are a good choice. The Přimda Ski Centre offers a slalom piste and a small training meadow. The highest ski lift station is situated at a height of 812 metres above sea level. The region is also excellent for cross-country skiing.
