The surroundings of Cucovna are not only fields, forests and groves. Within a radius of just 50 kilometres, you will find many historical monuments, popular tourist destinations and undiscovered corners. Just hop on your bike or turn the wheel, choose your destination and off you go! Cucovna is a paradise for nature lovers who want to explore the surrounding Polubian landscape. The Cucovna area is an ideal place to escape from everyday stress.
The spa colonnade, delicious pastries from the family bakery U Viléma or a steamboat ride are just a small taste. In Poděbrady, you will enjoy endless cycling trails through the countryside, cultural events and see the confluence of the Cidlina and Elbe rivers with your own eyes. As the locals say, "At every turn you are in the centre."
The centuries-old heart of the Czech Republic will delight you with its local breweries, magnificent views and unique atmosphere. The unassuming streets lined with historic buildings will lead you to traditional tourist stops as well as previously unknown shops with handicrafts or homemade delicacies.
The local sulphur-iron spring has been known for more than 700 years. During the war it protected the locals from cholera and today it cures movement disorders. The Elbe Cycle Route runs through the spa town, so before you pedal again, sample the pearls from the local wine bars or visit the prehistoric hill fort or gothic water mill.
Přerov nad Labem
More than 1,000 years old, the city will captivate you with its 14th century Gothic water castle, the 19th and 20th century Moto-Velo museum and the late 19th century open-air museum, the 4th in Europe! If you're drawn to history, Prerov is a must-stop on your trip.
Brandýs nad Labem - Stará Boleslav
Stories make history. And in the case of Brandeis, this is doubly true. A castle, a mill, a stone bridge from 1603, a Baroque brewery, an execution chamber with scribbled graffiti, the oldest Christian pilgrimage site in the Czech Republic or a Jewish cemetery from 1568 are just a fraction of all the stories.
1,300 kilometres across the countryside. From Špindlerův Mlýn to Cuxhaven in Germany. Just you and your bike. Let your worries drift away as easily as you pedal. Along the way you'll be greeted by cultural sights, beautiful nature and historic towns.
A pleasant refreshment in the water world, a mysterious underground, giant trampolines and swings, a mini-goat zoo, a farm with animals, go-kart races, a forest trail or magical gardens guarantee a whole day of fun for the whole family. Adrenaline and fun in one place.
The sandpit from 1972 was turned into a beautiful lake in the Kersko Nature Park after the mining was finished. The crystal clear water surrounded by sandy beaches and pine trees is an ideal place for swimming. In season, you can enjoy refreshments or a volleyball court.
Zřícenina kaple Povýšení sv. Kříže
The Baroque chapel with a cross-shaped plan will attract every lover of history and architecture. From Břítevská Hora you will enjoy an endless view of the countryside and you will also enjoy a stay in virtually untouched nature. And have you heard the local legend? The chapel is haunted.
Don't go into the garden without a penny. In the herb gardens you will find a tavern and workshops of traditional crafts. Make your own rope, soap or candle, weave a basket or forge a horseshoe. Enjoy a royal feast of local produce in the feast hall.
The uninhabited rectory has changed beyond recognition over the years. Chleby may not be the biggest or the oldest zoo in our country, but it is definitely worth a visit! Visit both the old and new parts of the zoo, explore the Eco Centre or send your kids on a Zoo-holiday.
By car or by bike. To get to Mělník, take the Elbe cycle path. Stop at the confluence of the Vltava and Elbe rivers, visit the local chateau, the Baroque town hall or the 13th century underground in Mělník. Wine lovers will enjoy the annual Mělník wine festival.
150 species of animals, including cute llamas and ponies, a chain carousel to make your head spin, a horse show every afternoon or a museum of historic vehicles and prepared animals. Enjoy a relaxing day at the largest family zoo in the country.
Kutná Hora is only 38 minutes by car from Cucovna and you will find yourself in a town whose urban conservation area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We highly recommend this trip.
Just 20 minutes from Cucovna is the lake of Konetop, which is a flooded sandpit with beautifully clear water. Interestingly, there are freshwater jellyfish and the former quarry offers great swimming and diving opportunities.
