Tips in the city
Renaissance Venetian Chateau
A great tip for a trip for families with children is the Venetian chateau, which is complemented by a beautiful park, vineyard and literally dominating the whole town. In the castle was the famous Danish star Tycho de Brahe, who made various measurements and observations here, built an observatory and also met with Jan Kepler, his collaborator, but also a rival in the field of astronomy. In the chateau, Tynon is considered a Benedictine meridian, and there is the opportunity to explore the places where this famous star created his famous works and theories. Other famous celebrities such as the music composers Bendová and Bedřich Smetana also lived there.
The chateau has an interesting interactive exhibition that shows the Celts civilization. Visitors can see archaeological finds from the 6th to the 1 st century BC, even dress up in the Celts clothing, try a spear, all in the chateau in the built-in Celts house. For visitors there is a tour of expositions connected with an interactive program. Here you can go for a Celtic coin, dress in knight armor, try to kneel horses and lots of other activities for children, but also for adults.

Zřícenina hradu Dražice
An interesting tip for a trip is the 13th century Dražice castle ruin, which is located in a nearby village near Venice nad Jizerou.

Church of St. Martin in Dražice
The church was founded and perhaps consecrated by Bishop Jan lV. The Dražice and the original single-nave Gothic structure have survived to this day. After several reconstructions, however, the church was demolished, canceled and sold in 1783, and the building was used for economic purposes. The rescue for the church was that he was redeveloped by the Družstevní závody in Dražice after the land reform. The church was repaired and redeemed in 1926. Preserved wall paintings dating back to the reign of Charles IV. Are a very valuable artistic and historical monument.
