Although Semily is the smallest district town in the Czech Republic, they still offer several attractions to see and visit. But mainly it is a good starting point for hikes along the Jizera. Let's see what can be seen here

Rieger Square in Semily

The historic center of Semily is located east of the river Jizera. We can start our tour of the city, for example, on Rieger Square, which is the most famous native of Semily
