The town Sobotka lies at the southern end of the Czech Paradise and is most known for the unmistakable silhouette of hunting castle Humprecht towering on hill bearing the same name (342 m asl). The local nice square is surrounded on three sides by houses with arcades and on the west side you can find a lot of nice wooden cottages. Sobotka is an excellent starting point for bike tours or trips into Plakanek valley and to castle Kost.

Namesti Miru (“Square of Peace”)

Namesti Miru is the center of Sobotka and there is a fountain and baroque memorial pole. It is surrounded on three sides by nice houses with arcades. Unfortunately, it also serves as a parking place and road junction, so there's also busy traffic.

Male namesti (“Small Square”)

Just a bit further is Male namesti (“Small Square”), whose name is really apt. There is an interesting presbytery building.

Nooks in Sobotka

Perhaps the most interesting part of this small town is the western part with a lot of very nice timbered houses. Humprecht in the background is the inseparable part of almost every view.

The treasure of folk architecture

It is best to start the trip around the interesting wooden buildings in Sobotka at the southwest corner of Namesti Miru, where is located the last timbered town house at this square. From here set out to the west direction along Novomestska street.

It is also worthwhile to turn into side streets from the green tourist trail leading along Novomestska street and see the local small and very picturesque cottages.
