Nové Město nad Metují – between the bliss and hell

/ / Czech Republic/ 0 comments

Nové Město nad Metují is located in the Czech Republic, around 7 miles from Polish border. However, believe me that a trip there is definitely not a piece of cake.

First stop – the town Náchod, famous for perfectly equipped shops. Staple goods like very good beer and better beer abound in this town, so for some a trip to Czech Republic, not only starts there but also unexpectedly ends.

Those who miraculously manage to go past this town, have another problem. The way to Nové Město nad Metují, goes between the big lake – Bliss and the valley called the Hell in translation.

All in all, going to the Bliss is not such a bad idea but the Hell is better to admire from the view point located close to the Nové Město castle.

The castle which is the main tourist attraction in Nové Město nad Metují is open to visitors. Unfortunately guide trips are available only in Czech and taking photos is forbidden. However, the fabulous chambers are well worth visiting.
