Route description:

Head out for your trip around Humpolec, and revel in the beauty of the surrounding landscapes. You will enjoy the company of two important historical monuments: Lipnice Castle and the Orlík nad Humpolcem Castle ruins. Set out on your journey from Humpolec, which is situated at the midpoint between Prague and Brno. When in Humpolec you simply must not miss visiting the HLINÍKárium, a light-hearted museum about the town's most famous incomer. The Dr Aleš Hrdlička Museum boasts interesting exhibits as well. On your way visit Lipnice nad Sázavou, home of one of our largest castles, towering over the surrounding landscape atop a rocky crag. Jaroslav Hašek experienced the last years of his life in the house beneath the castle. It is here that he wrote his most famous work,The Fateful Adventures of the Good Soldier Švejk. On your way back to Humpolec, you will come across the Orlík Castle ruins. This castle was built at the end of the 14th century, and its massive square tower and entry gate that protected it from enemies have survived to this day.
