In the region of Jičín, below the Zebín hill, there is a well-known baroque monument Valdštejnská loggia. Thanks to the fact that it has been undergoing gradual reconstruction in recent years, it is becoming more and more interesting for visitors from further afield. From Lodžia, you can go through the desolate forest park, which is protected as a natural monument Libosad – nature reserve, to the least visited Jičín monument – the Jewish cemetery. Along the way, you will also pass a pond, which has the greatest charm, especially in autumn.

The Wallenstein loggia under magical light

We will start the walk at the Valdštejnská Loggia, where the light is sometimes really magical. The beautiful park and Loggia alone are worth a separate tour.

Road to Libosad - nature reserve

From Lodz we will set off in a south-easterly direction. We will cross the train tracks, pass through a landscaped part of the garden and finally continue straight into an overgrown wood. Duke Valdštejn planned to build a magnificent garden here. Unfortunately, with his untimely death, the greatest development of Jičín stopped.

Footbridge over Valdický potok

The main point of the walk is across the Valdický potok. Before, there was only a log across the water, where some people preferred to turn it back. Now there's a rickety footbridge, so it's a little less adrenaline-pumping than before.

A pond in the middle of a forest

There is a relatively large pond in the middle of the desolate nature reserve. A short distance from it, we will join a more respectable path that will take you to the cemetery

Jičín Jewish Cemetery

Finally, we come to the destination of our walk – the least visited interesting monument of Jičín. There is a high wall around the entire area and the entrance gate is locked

View of the cemetery from the wall

When you go around the entire cemetery, you will certainly find a passable place from where you can climb the wall and you can view the entire cemetery from a height. You can return to the loggia by a faster route along the nature reserve
