The most famous starting point to the Plakánek valley is Kost Castle or the folk village of Vesec. However, you can also walk here directly from Sobotka or from the village of Osek and return here in several alternative ways. For lovers of fairy tales, the most interesting place is the famous fairytale mill in Střehom

Wooden bell tower in Osek

A good starting point for this tour is the village of Osek west of Sobotka, where the most important monument is the wooden bell tower at the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. If you plan to make a larger circuit connected with a visit to Humprecht, for example, you can start in Sobotka

The beginning of the Plakánek valley

The road from Střehomi leads along a meadow with quite nice views. Then you come to the settlement Rašovec with one interesting house. From here you go along the river Klenice in the nature reserve Údolí Plakánek. In early spring, snowdrops grow here, then anemones and other water-loving plants. You will also come across a nice well Roubenka here

Střehomský Plakánek to Kost

From the well Roubenka it is only a short distance to the crossroads Plakánek – valley, from where you can continue through Vesecký Plakánek to Vesce and further to Osek or walk through the most beautiful part of the valley to Kost Castle. Here you join about halfway through the classic tour of both Plakánky
