Dolní Poohří

Dolní Poohří

The idyllically undulating landscape along the life-giving Ohře River, which crawls through the broad valley like a mythical snake from one royal town to another, the forested peaks crowned by the ruins of proud castles, vast fields and humble gardens showered in sunshine and caressed by the wind, the rippled water surface of the endless Nechranice Water Reservoir.
A region furrowed by traces of past merchants and battles of the legendary Lučan tribe. A land of mysterious menhirs. Confide in the Ohře River, she knows the best route through her kingdom. You will be welcomed by Klášterec nad Ohří with a Neo-Gothic romantic château full of rare porcelain, then hosted by Kadaň, a medieval town with the narrowest street in the country, town walls and zwingers, as well as the playful Maxipes Fík embankment. The Ohře will take you to the historic Žatecwith the largest hops museum in the world, the unique Hops and Beer Temple, where you can hear the beer astronomical clock chime and take a ride in a magical elevator that transforms into the basket of a balloon, flying high above the town. Then, Louny awaits you, the Ohře’s lunar pearl with its fascinating roofs of the Gothic Cathedral of St. Nicholas and a mighty Žatec gate gripping the horseshoe of the town walls. You can head off in any direction from the river bed to discover amazing things – the largest château park in the country, which surrounds the Krásný Dvůr château, the frightful dragon sleeping in a mine adit in Březno, the radiant châteaux in Stekník, Líčkov or Nový Hrad, and finally the mysterious and magic energy of the unfinished Gothic cathedral in Panenský Týnec. Moreover, most of those beauties are linked by the Ohře Cycling Trail, which is so nice to ride along...
