Hamrštíci to Alsovic
Hamrštice - The old road led from ancient times from Turnov to Jablonec nad Nisou. Today, it is possible that countless vehicles do not drive, according to witnesses to the newly built roads, but also to enjoy the slow wandering through the region. We managed to open the view of the surrounding regions from Ještěd through Ralsko and Bezděz to the south, where two towers of the ruins of the Trosek castle and the unmistakable peak of Kozákov, up to the Krkonoše panorama in the east, win.
We can set out along the blue tourist trail, for example from Krásná. A blue-marked path with beautiful views across Čížkovice to Alšovice will lead us from the local heritage site. The first monument we meet on the way with Krásná, more precisely which we will see from the distance from Hamrštice in the foreground when looking to the Giant Mountains, is the chapel above Jistebsko. The small chapel used to stand at the crossroads of roads, today it stands a little isolated in the middle of meadows and pastures. The chapel remembers passing pilgrims passing to the frequently visited pilgrimage to Krásná. Today's pilgrim, if he got lost here, would probably have a chapel for himself. Cars whistle without stopping on nearby modern roads and there is idyllic peace.
If we continue across Čížkovice and cross the main road from Jablonec to Turnov, we will come along a romantic path in the middle of the meadows to the cross above Skuhrov. A place with beautiful views and a romantic cross can be used for a small break to the road, or. take a walk to the lookout point at Skuhrov, which offers both the comfort of a resting place and, above all, unique views of the south and east.
if we have reached the views, we can continue along Hamrstice nad Alšovice. The landscape suddenly begins to change. We leave the Jizera Mountains and descend to the Bohemian Paradise.
Alšovice, however, also hide a number of secrets, which at first glance hidden to the superficial visitor. Only when we get lost among the narrow streets of a picturesque village will we discover interesting hidden places. The local artist Václav Horáček lives in the village. Originally a glassmaker lives in a house filled with paintings and glass products and machines. In the backyard we cannot overlook the driket, a local type of glass workshop. But if we thought we could find Mr. Horáček's house by its characteristic chimney, we were next. There's a whole lot of dricks around.
The unique atmosphere of the village set in the slopes of the mountains is illustrated by the simple construction of the local church of the Unity of Brethren. But we are already in the middle of the village. From here you can continue either after returning to Hamrštica along the blue trail down from the mountains to Železný Brod, or turn back around the monument to the victims of World War I and further up to Pěnčín, where the most visited sight is the local goat farm.
On the farm you can refresh yourself with products from local agriculture, or just walk around the farm, which combines local agricultural tradition with glassmaking, as it has been in the local region since ancient times. From there it is a bit back to Krásná, where the local road marked as cycle path 4249 leads.
