It is" must do" in Spindleruv Mlyn. Lttle Bobsleigh going down in a high speed on a rounded aluminium pipe. It is 1000m long. It is great deal of pure fun. Inside the bobsleigh there is a break. If you push it towards your body you slow down. Easy:) For only 300 czech kroners about 15euro you can go 5 times. It can really make you laugh.Just on the...more
If you are brave and good at cyclng you have to try down hill track. It is 2800m long with difference of 450m in hight along the way. You just have to take a lift up to Svaty Petr hill. It looks quite easy when you look at it from the valley, but when you get to the top......well.... that's different story. We didn't have helmets and any other...more
The Silver Rock music bar an excellent venue and is very popular and worth going too.
Dress Code: There's not really a dress code, however getting in can be a problem because of the ice on the slope walking up to the doors! haha You will find it alot easier leaving thou! haha
The tourists are transfered from Spindleruv Mlyn to Martinova Bouda. Transport can be arranged with the people at the bouda. Means of transport is a landrover type car, and when there is snow or ice, the upper part of the way is done by snow mobil.
After a days skiing or Snowboarding its customary to venture to the Audi Ski bar for a few drinks before going back to your hotel before dinner :-)
Wealth Warning: Avoid changing currency at Chequepoint's branch in Spindleruv Mlyn - or anywhere else for that matter.
Some of my British and American friends have told me horror stories of the rip-off rates charged by Chequepoint when changing money into Euros. It seems to be a problem with this particular dealer - other VT members in Hungary and Hong Kong have reported the same kind of fraud.
My advice is not to use Chequepoint under any circumstances. Click on the logo so you can steer well clear of these sharks.
Fun Alternatives: In any event, you will get much more competitive rates drawing local currency on your Visa or Visa Electron card (preferably use a cash dispenser in a bank during opening hours and check the card slot shows no evidence of being fiddled with (a favourite trick is to slip a thin additional reader in). Shield the keypad with your hand as you tap the numbers in (in another scam, a concealed webcam films your PIN number).
