Trutnov is a relatively large district town below the Giant Mountains located on the river Upa. You will be interested in the historical center around Krakonoš Square. You can go for a walk to the top of Šibeník (506 m above sea level), through which leads an educational trail related to the Prussian-Austrian war of 1866

Krakonoš Brewery

You can start your tour of Trutnov directly opposite one of the city's landmarks – the Krakonoš brewery. There is a large car park and the city center is just a short walk away.

Slovanské náměstí and the Trutnov town hall

We come to Slovanské náměstí, where the brutalist town hall building is located. Typical beautification of the historic center by communist comrades.
