Do you like technological sites with moving parts and interesting mechanisms? Then you will really enjoy the Liberec Region!

Near the village of Chřibská, you can see the original equipment of a spice mill that has been located there since 1884. Oldřich Prášil´s Mill in Železnice is a great example of the craftsmanship of local millers, carpenters and engineers. History can be witnessed in Podsemínský Mill with a Francis turbine and in the water mill in Roztoky u Semil, which is 300 years old. Světlík wind mill is one of the largest preserved wind mills in the Czech Republic. If you would like to see a running water turbine, visit the interactive exhibition in the Museum of Energy in Velké Hamry.

A very popular attraction is the only Czech rack railway, which lies on the steepest section from Tanvald to Kořenov. The museum railway from Česká Kamenice to Kamenický Šenov is 4.5 km long and the private garden railway in Skalsko is 500 metres.

The village of Kryštofovo Údolí boasts a unique sundial with an astronomical clock and 21 wooden statues. The adit of St. John the Evangelist in Jiřetín documents that silver was once mined here. If you would like to take a brewery tour with beer sampling, you can do so in Cvikov, Frýdlant and Hrubý Rohozec.

A private museum of Jawa vintage motorcycles in Rabakov offers a comprehensive Jawa collection from 1929 to 2006. The V.I.T.V.A.R. Car Gallery in Nová Paka presents historic cars and motorcycles.

The more courageous can try the suspended gallery along Riegrova trail in a rocky canyon of the Jizera River, located 5.5 metres above the river’s surface. The covered wooden bridge in Bystrá nad Jezerou can be crossed by foot, on bike or even by car.

Rise to the clouds in observatories that you can find in Jičín, Mladá Boleslav and Turnov. The very first sledding track opened in Smržovka as early as 1912; its rarity is a 400-degree curve. Races are organized here both in summer and in winter.

In Kořenov, below the Štepánka lookout tower, you can see an exhibition of light fortification either with a guide or alone. You can learn a lot of information about the history and presence of civil defense in the Liberec underground corridors.

Finally, you can take a picture with a small Martian who is waiting for other extraterrestrials next to the Ještěď mountain hotel, which by itself looks a little like a spaceship.

 A large number of technological sites are associated with railways or crafts. We have organized them into categories.
