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.
