One of the main attractions of Liberec is a visit to the television tower on the top of the mountain Jested with his 1012m, the highest hills in the immediate surroundings of Liberec.No panic you don't have to climb all the way to the top. There is skyline/cableway who takes you to the top in less than 5 minutes. From the top you have fantastic...more
For 330Kc you can spend the day at Liberec's themepark. The place is huge. We only visited the Aquapark section.The Aquapark has 4 large slides designed for 10 years+; whirlpool; hidden areas which generate waves or shoot out water; water caverns; sunbeds; spas; saunas - with icy pools near them. If you loose your child, it's not easy to find...more
Awesome!!! The Centrum Babylon is actually a hotel, “aquapark”, bowling alley, discothèque, restaurant, and shopping mall all under one roof. I only went to the aquapark, but it alone is worth the trip. Numerous waterslides, dozens of swimming pools connected to each other with tunnels, caves, slides, and bridges, and a massage parlor above. Really...more
Liberec has a remarkable zoo and Botanic garden which are next to each other in one of the finest parts of the city. They collect plants and animals from all the world, some of which are very rare. The visit to the zoo or the botanic isn't expensive at all. The only little problem is that you should pay a small price when taking in a videocamera.more
Tram 2/3 to Museum stop. From the foyer of the museum you walk into a temp. exhibition room - while we where there it was an amazing collection of film posters, dated from the 1945 to 2005 - including the Czech posters for Yellow Submarine, Alien, Pink Panther. Upstair is another temp. exhibition area - at present modern glass sculpture.The...more

Another restaurant away from the town centre. This one is a bit of a walk but well worth it.The walk itself is very pleasant as you walk along the path next to the resevoir. Be warned though if it rains heavily you will have to do some puddle jumping ;)Right at the very end of the path the restaurant appears out of the trees.By local standards this...more
Opposite the bus station is a multi storey car park painted blue. Beneath this is a restaurant whose name I cannot remember at the moment.In this unlikely location a real diamond of a restaurant is hidden. Decorated like a traditional Czech restaurant you instantly feel as if you have escaped from the hustle & bustle of every day life. Here you can...more
"Potrefana Husa" (The wounded goose).Situated on the corner, across the road from TESCO. I've always found the food there to be very good. A few czech traditional dishes mixed in more international fare. It is geared up to cater for tourists (English and german menus) but is very popular with affluent locals. It is in fact quite pricey by local...more
I spent about five delightful hours here one afternoon / evening, simply eating, sipping on "pivo" (beer), looking at the snow falling outside, and writing in my journal. A very nice atmosphere where it seemed like many locals went to cheerfully spend a few hours enjoying a peaceful respite from the winter outside. They do have menus available in...more
My friend Michael (globetrott) wrote such an enthusiastic review of this coffeehouse which made me going to Liberec :-)And he is right! The architecture is historistic (Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque), with high ceilings, stucco works, large mirrors on the walls etc.The food was excellent, prices low, service quick - but the waitress a bit...more
This is a great Restaurant in downtown Liberec. It serves International food: mostly American, but also great Italian pastas and Mexican flavours mixed.It also has a big grill where the cook prepares your chosen meat right there on the spot, and you can see it if you're sitting close.Plus, it offeres a special separate dining room and services for...more

BOOK YOUR TICKETS IN ADVANCE. The buses fill up really quickly. The idos site included more buses than actually run(which we found very odd, as I have never had this problem before). The bus run to Liberec is serviced by both Student Agency and CSAD(a few small carriers, not really CSAD) buses - both leave from Platform 7 at Cerny Most (downstairs...more
Imagine a bus with assigned seating, a plush and immaculate interior, music or television for all with provided headphones, free hot chocolate, and enough space underneath for even the largest of luggage. Now imagine that you can take that bus from Prague to Liberec for 60 Kc (about US$3). Well, you can (even if you are not a student) with the...more
The cable car is the most convenient way to get up to Mt. Jested. It runs every 30 minutes (except 12.00 - 13.00 h).Fare is 50 Kc one way and 80 Kc return trip. Really a bargain.There are a couple of small parking grounds near the cable car station, but they were occupied when I was there. You better use tram/bus to Horni Hanychov (final stop) and...more
It's the biggest shop in the city. There is being sold a great amount of stocks, food, clothes and much more. This store was originally opened in 1978 and seems to have good future. The shop became part of TESCO network in 1993. Prices aren't very high in this department store.more
Hypernova is a large shopping centre just outside the town centre.It has a large supermarket, clothes shops, book shops, hairdressers, a kids play area, cafes, restaurants etc.To get there take the number 500 bus FREE from the main bus station in Liberec every 25 minutes.more

A somewhat confusing "local custom" are the numerous Erotic/Sex shops in Liberec. I was very surprised to see so many of those even in the city centre. You find them every 100 m, sometimes two or three in that distance.I cannot imagine the Czech need so much stimulation for their sex life. Or is it all for tourists? I really don't know.more

Liberec can be described as a real tourist destination only in winter, when it's possible to ski from the mountains surrounding the town. In summer, however, nobody seems keen on climbing them, and that's a mistake I think. Going to the top of Jested mountain is a nice physical exercise, plus - it gives you a wonderful opportunity to see one of the...more
Going to a football match in the Czech Republic is a great experience. A wonderful atmosphere with fans from both teams mixing and enjoying a pre-match beer.Liberec has it's own impressive stadium cut out of the rocks, but if you are in town when Liberec play local rivals Jablonec in Jablonec it is well worth the short journey to see the event.The...more
I skied Mt. Jested in the early 1990s and was curious what has changed since then. To be honest - I was a bit disappointed to see that they still run these old ski-lifts. The cable car runs every 30 minutes (with a break from 12 - 13 h) and is not really an alternative. As I read in a German journal they plan to invest a lot of money, though.The...more
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...more
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...more
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. Best memory... all about this place where I felt great....more
