Most tourists have an idea of Mladá Boleslav only as an industrial city with housing estates and few attractions to visit. At the same time, the Old Town of Boleslav has relatively enough interesting sights to see. So let's go for a walk around the Old Town and its surroundings

View of the Old Town of Boleslav

We can choose the beginning of the tour, for example, from the end of TG Masaryk's class, where you can usually park well. From here we have a view of the towers of the Old Town

Church of St. Havel

The first interesting and pleasant place is the church of St. Havel. You will find several more tombstones as a remnant of a former cemetery

Old Town Square in Mlada Boleslav

Finally, we are in the historic center of Mladá Boleslav, which is the Old Town Square. Unfortunately, there are also several houses from the time of the former regime, which spoil the square a bit. The center of the square is a column with a statue of the Virgin Mary

The main monument of the city is the former Renaissance town hall decorated with sgraffito.

City Palace Templ

From the Old Town Square you can turn into a narrow street to the historic city palace Templ. There is a view of the Jizera valley next door, but thanks to the huge parking lot and the industrial zone, it is not a great beauty.

Entrance to the castle pavilion

We continue to the very end of the Old Town Square, where there is an entrance to the castle grounds. There is also a museum of the Mladá Boleslav region

We return to the former minority monastery through the old center. The whole building is nicely renovated and today serves as an education and training center
