CHECK OUT THE ARCHITECTURE
Favorite thing: I liked the buildings I saw in Liberec.
The neo-renaissance Town Hall and the Theatre were both beautiful buildings! These were not the only ones though, I found plenty more just in the area around the town square. Others, like the museum and some buildings in the residential area still symbolize the golden times of when Liberec flourished as a city.
- Hiking and Walking
- Historical Travel
Favorite thing: The Lamp Posts I really liked in Liberec. There were plain ones, and others were decorated. The ones around the Theatre had some odd looking faces and then at the front of the Theatre, these were different again.
The lamp posts looked really good against the historic old buildings - Nice touch!
Architecture - Empire style
Favorite thing: A bit west of the town hall, on the square where the St. Antonius church is located, you'll see some beautiful houses in Empire style (19th century). They would make a great ensemble of architecture - if they were restored.
Unfortunately, almost all houses in the area are in pitiable condition. And, in case one of them looks a bit nicer and you get closer, you'll notice the lack of craftmanship of restoration.
However, it's interesting for fans of architecture.
Architecture - Art Nouveau
Favorite thing: The city centre is pedestrian zone. From the Market square (Nam. Dr. E. Benese) with the town hall down to Soukenne Nam. leads a narrow street called Prazska.
The street is very narrow and so you'll have problems to take good photos. Anyway, I enjoyed the facades of the townhouses very much - mostly from the turn of 19th/20th century. Some of them are beautiful Art Nouveau style, pretty much influenced by Prague and Vienna.
Almost all houses are beautifully restored, an exception in Liberec ... but don't have a look in the backyards :-)
Destination all year
Favorite thing: Well, which to start with... they're so much. At least I can say that here everything is on its right place. Liberec is a very green city and it's built on several hills. This makes it look very fresh and attractive. Here comes also the beautiful architecture from different styles. And so on.
Fondest memory: Best memory... all about this place where I felt great. What do I miss most? Everything.
- Skiing and Boarding
- Museum Visits
Favorite thing: It is the largest city of northern Bohemia, noted for its textile industry and exhibition fairs. At the end of the last century, a high neo-renaiss Town Hall was built in the town centre.
Old timbered houses can be seen at Vetrna Street. The town and Jested mountain (1012m) are connected by cableway (about 10 ski-lifts on the Jested slopes).
