The vicinity

It is not only Jaroměř that is worth visiting. Its vicinity also offers several interesting places with rich history.

 

  • The Kuks Hospital

The Kuks Hospital has the status of a cultural heritage site and it is managed by the National Monuments Office’s local East Bohemian branch in Sychrov.

This place is a little less than nine kilometres from Jaroměř. To visit it you can use a cycling path that leads from Hradec Králové through Jaroměř to Kuks.

Matthias Bernhard Braun’s magnificent works can be found everywhere in the area of the hospital. They include, for example, his elaborate sculptures of virtues and vices.
