Welcome to Jicin
Cities :   Jicin

Jicin is located in the Cesky Raj region (the Czech Paradise) and was originally a wooden town. Albrecht from Valdstejn re-built the town in stone at the beginning of the 17th century. He built an early Baroque chateau, a summer house with loggia, a new decanal church and a complex of Jesuit's buildings according to an ambitious project designed by an Italian architect. The Valdicka Gate marks an important feature of the town. The present classical appearance of the town and chateau arose in the period after the fire in 1768. Among other things, Jicin is well-known as a town of fairy-tails in honour of the fabulous robber known as Rumcajs and his author, the writer Vaclav Ctvrtek.
