Welcome to East Bohemia
Cities :    Hradec Kralove
Hradec Kralove

This is the economic and cultural centre of the East Bohemian Region. The town centre was proclaimed a protected area and includes preserved Gothic, Renaissance and baroque houses and arcades. Especially worth noting is the triangular Zizka´s Square and the brick built early Gothic Cathedral of the Holy Ghost from the 14th century which is located in the town centre. The sandstone White Tower (Bila vez), which contains the second largest bell in the Czech Republic, the town hall next to it which includes two Renaissance Towers, and the Town Museum building, which was built in the cubism style, rank among the main attractions of the town.

This town is the seat of a number of universities, museums, galleries, theatres and a conference centre. Noted architects Jan Kotera and Josef Gocar have contributed to the modern appearance of the town. A village and a peak (336 m above the sea level) of the same name - Chlum - where the final battle between Prussia and Austria took place on July 3, 1866, are located near Hradec Kralove. A look-out tower, along with a restaurant, a new-Gothic ossuary and the museum, which includes a monument of this battle, are located in a small park on the peak of Chlum.
