Eastern Bohemia



In the heart of Europe - a unique position from the lowlands to the rocky labyrinths

About region

The Eastern Bohemian region is located on the border of Bohemia and Moravia, and covers the territory of today’s Pardubice and Hradec Králové regions. It borders Poland to the north and its location makes it easily accessible from other countries neighbouring the Czech Republic: Slovakia, Austria and Germany. A motorway connects Hradec Králové to Prague, which can be easily reached in just an hour’s drive. Pardubice - with its international airport - also lies on a major railway corridor. A distinctive feature of both regional cities is their close proximities to river confluences - Hradec Králové on the confluence of the Elbe and the Orlice, and Pardubice on the Elbe and the Chrudimka. 

Thanks to the its unique position and rich history, Eastern Bohemia offers you both sweeping lowland areas and mountainous and rocky massifs; both well-preserved timber buildings from bygone eras and showcases of modern Czech architecture; both one of the largest rivers in Europe as well as numerous small, winding streams, weirs and ponds; both beautifully restored castles as well as countless accessible ruins marked by the ravages of time; both picturesque and peaceful town hideaways as well as the hustle and bustle of two regional cities, separated from one another by a mere twenty kilometres. Noteworthy features of the region are rock formations which form unique, concealed rock towns. And of course, that’s not all... Besides its magnificent countryside, interesting history and fascinating technical landmarks, the region also boasts kind and hospitable people who wear their hearts on their sleeves and know how to live a rich cultural, athletic and social life. Eastern Bohemia is the birthplace of many world famous personalities as well as the place of origin of a range of extraordinary works from the most varied areas of human life.
