To the south of Jičín is the Baroque landscape of the Marian Garden on the former Schliků estate. Getting to know the local sights is ideal for a bike trip. This approximately 40-kilometer easy trip will take you through the exit of the Marian Garden

Tuř Castle

From Jičín, take the road to Hradec Králové and continue along the district through Robousy and Kacáková Lhota (a few log cabins). The first interesting stop is after about 10 kilometers drive in Tura. Above the village there is a castle where social events are held and it is possible to stay.

Milíčeves Castle

From Tura it is only a few hundred meters to Butovse, where you turn right and drive to Milíčeves. Here you will find a large park and a nice mansion in the middle. Today it serves as a home for the elderly

Peat bogs

From Milíčeves continue to Slatina, where the church is completely different than all the others in this area. The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary is built in the Rococo Gothic style. Right next to the church is a wooden bell tower
