Češovské valy is located in the south of the Jičín district in an area called Mariánská zahrada just a short distance from the village of Češov. It is a large prehistoric fortified settlement with the largest ramparts in Bohemia, situated on a wooded hill (321 m above sea level). For lovers of forest walks and history, an ideal short trip

Češov

The starting point for Češovské valy is a small, well-groomed village Češov. The biggest local landmark is the small bell tower on the square. Right next to it is a monument to St. Wenceslas and a short distance away the statue of Jan Kozina. From here you can take the nature trail in the direction of Valy

Road to the ramparts

From the village square, continue along the marked path through the village and then along the dirt road by a round tree. It is almost 1.5 kilometers to the ramparts

At the North Gate

The nature trail will take you to the so-called northern gate, where it is the most interesting – first a small rampart behind it a moat and the second a huge one.

Walk along the top of the rampart

A footpath leads along the top of the rampart, along which you can possibly go for a long walk around the entire fort

The whole fort is now overgrown with a beautiful oak-hornbeam forest, which literally blooms in the spring
