Paseky nad Jizerou

Paseky nad Jizerou is one of the most valuable centres of Krkonose rural architecture, with many preserved timbered houses with typical gable decorations.

Land of the Lost Patriots

Amidst beautiful natural settings with a breath-taking view of the Western Krkonose, you will find the Krkonose Museum – Memorial to Lost Patriots, created to pay tribute to Venceslav Metelka, a local writer, violin maker and teaching assistant who was an inspiration for the writer Karel Vaclav Rais in his novel entitled The Lost Patriots. The museum now presents a rich collection of musical instruments, practical examples of work on a loom, a mechanical nativity scene and the tradition of theatre in the village and its history.

The oldest architectural monument in Paseky is the Baroque church of St. Wenceslas dating back to 1798, furnished with rare Rococo altars.

Great Downhill Tracks

In winter, the ‘Skiareal Paseky’ ski resort is a quiet place on the edge of the Western Krkonose. It offers ten kilometres of groomed downhill tracks of various difficulty on extensive slopes from 620 to 860 m a.s.l in altitude.

The traditional Pasecke Musical Feast is held every year in the first half of August to maintain the village’s musical tradition.
