Ceska Lipa Things to Do

  • UNION CAFE

    The Union Café is an interesting building on the walking trail of Ceska Lipa. Union Café was built between 1907-1909 in Art Nouveau style. It's three-stories high and has unusual windows in the shape of horse shoes, a balcony runs along the front of these. The whole facade is decorated beautifully with a lot of stucco. I have no idea what a...

  • THE AUGUSTINIAN MONASTERY

    As we drove into Ceska Lipa we passed by the Augustinian monastery. Later, we stayed nearly next door to it. This is a huge Monastery as they were in those days. It was founded by Albrecht of Wallenstein in 1627 as a Latin school to allow a gradual return of Catholicism to the Protestant environment. Today it is being used as a MUSEUM OF LOCAL...

  • ST. CROSS CHURCH

    The St. Cross Church is interesting because of its unusual "tent" style roof. The Church was built in the second half of 14th century, later reconstructed in Late Gothic style and even later in 1897 was altered to neo-Gothic style. The inside has ceiling paintings and a Baroque altar.

  • T.G. MASARYK SQUARE

    T. G. Masaryk Square is where I found the Tourist Information Centre and many beautiful historic buildings. Pride had been taken in these buildings, many from the 1500s.The Town Hall with its neo-Renaissance façade was built in 1515, although the façade was added in 1884. It is a lovely building with a fine Clock Tower. Next door [Tourist info...

  • TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE

    To find the Tourist Information centre, I had to walk up the hill to the Old Town Square.I came to the Information centre in hope of finding a Laundry and to get some information on accommodation.English was rather limited, even so, I did understand directions for a laundry. It wasn't the self-serve type I wanted, so no good, and that was the only...

Ceska Lipa Nightlife

  • Good all round Bar

    The Lucky Bar has a mix of customers. Mainly a younger crowd. It has pool tables and other games machines and plays up-to-date music. Good atmosphere but a little dark and smokey at times. Prices are ok, good list of drinks including cocktails. No dress code.

  • Hospoda - Pub

    There are many pubs in Ceska Lipa but this one is slightly different as it has an English theme, theres even a real, old, red English phone box in the pub.

Ceska Lipa Tourist Traps

  • by MrMDL Updated Oct 23, 2003

    Dont be tempted to buy clothes and other goods from these shops or markets. They are very cheap but thats for a reason. they are made of poor quality goods and they will not last long, sometimes even days. Put some extra money towards better quality items.

    Unique Suggestions: If you do go, don't show how much money you have and try to speak in Czech. If you carn't get someone who can to speak for you. If they know yours a touist you will get ripped off.

    Fun Alternatives: There are limited high quality stores in town so stick to the shops in the centre or go to a larger town like Liberec or Prague.

Ceska Lipa Off The Beaten Path

  • BEZDIZ CASTle

    A trip to Bezdìz Castle is only 28 kms from Ceska Lipa.Unfortunately for me, all I could see was the mighty Bezdìz Castle sitting on Bezdìz hill, because in April it was only open on weekends. Well, I hope you can visit, as I was quite disappointed that we couldn't. Bezdìz was built as a Royal Castle in the 13th century and now is considered one of...

    Located just 16kms from Ceska Lipa, is the town of Mimoñ. We happened to be passing through when I saw some interesting caves.There was signage written in Czech, so I had no idea until now what they were. It turns out they were used as Brewery cellars and cliff dwellings. These historic caves were carved into the sandstone hillside. The town has...

Ceska Lipa Favorites

  • HIGH RISE BLOCKS OF FLATS

    As we advanced nearer to the centre of Ceska Lispa, it was quite a surprise to see many high rise blocks of modern flats. This was so different to any other Czech towns & cities in the area. Evidently, these flats came about as Uranium mining began in the area, this in turn brought people here for work, resulting in the city growing quite quickly....

  • Department Stores

    There are two "department stores" opposite each other in the town centre. Each of the department stores sell a wide range of goods and both have a supermarket on te lower levels.However if your used to large more well known separtment stores in other countries you might get a bit of a culture shock. Dont expect them to be anything like the ones...
