The Rovensko pod Troskami area

The area is the region’s geographic centre. In its middle are the ruins of Trosky castle, looming over two unique lava cones. Trosky is also a symbol of the entire region, surrounded by vast cuboidal sandstone plates, shaped by erosion into romantic rock formations and canyon valleys. This area also includes the Podtrosecká údolí (valley) Nature Reserve with a set of ponds, wetlands and wet meadows along the Žehrovka river and Želejovský potok brook. The dominant feature of the northern part is the watch hill of Český ráj (Bohemian Paradise), Kozákov, famous for its precious stone deposits that also gave the hill its name. It is said that if a shepherd throws a stone at a goat (in Czech “koza”), the stone is worth more than the entire herd. The centre of the area is Rovensko pod Troskami with its famous belfry housing “rebelling” upside down bells. Southwest hillsides above the town have been successfully used as orchards.

Rovensko pod Troskami – there is a neo-Renaissance town hall in the square. Near the Church of Saint Wenceslas, you can see the most important sight of the town, an octagonal wooden belfry from 1630. Three “rebel” bells under the shingled roof are peacefully turned with their hearts up and are set into motion by pedalling. Log houses in the town and the sculptural group called “Rozhovor” (Dialogue) in the square are also worth seeing. The town is known for its precious stone and Czech garnet cutting tradition. The Czech poet Svatopluk Čech used to come here (you can see his bust by B. Sucharda in the park). The Municipal Museum houses an exposition of precious stones, an exhibition of dolls and a seasonal information centre .

Allainův kříž – the cross was erected by Count Camille de Rohan in 1849 to commemorate his brother who died in a horse race. The cross on a stone barrow was originally made from wood and a year later, a stonemason created an accurate stone copy. Kamil Rohan used to come to the cross to pray for his brother.

Tábor – The Baroque Church of the Transformation of Christ from the Counter-Reformation period was once a procession destination– there is a Way of the Cross with stations decorated with cast-iron reliefs on the northern hillside. A recently renovated chalet with a lookout tower. Seasonal .

Libuň – In 1629, Libuň was one of the centres of the rural uprising in the Hrubá Skála domain and in 1866 it witnessed the battles of the Austro-Prussian war. Patriotic oriented priest Antonín Marek lived and worked in the Church of Saint Martin and the local Baroque parish in the mid-19th centuryThanks to him, the village became a major cultural life centre (his monument can be seen in front of the church). Near the church, notice the 17th century Tuscan Column, an obelisk and Baroque statues. The parish houses a gallery dedicated to the painter F. Kaván, who used to live here.
