Built in a baroque style by French Rohan family, the Sychrov chateau is one of the most visited places in Liberec region. There are guided tours in various language which will walk you through the chateau. The building and its interiors are well maintained.

I highly recommend visiting Sychrov Chateau when you are in this region. Do not forget to walk through their gardens and reach the orangery to cool down with their refreshing lemonade.

There is a small but interesting skiing equipments section in the basement of the Chateau. This display gives you an insight into a long tradition of skiing and winter sports in Jizera mountain areas.

Just a few blocks from this Chateau, there is a ‘Curious street‘.

Curious Street

Curious to know what is it? All of the residents along this street have built their houses in such way that one corner window is a bit forward on the street so that they can look on to the main square down the street. And hence the name. 🙂 Well, the curiosity kills the cat but no one got killed here.
