Česká Lípa

Česká Lípa is located in an area attractive for tourists between Lužické hory, České středohoří and Máchův kraj.

The town was founded in the 13th century. At that time a Slavic settlement situated at the country road to Žitava started to develop into a town. Thanks to the development of crafts, extraordinarily developed suburban areas were set up around the inner town. In the 18th century Česká Lípa ranked among most populated Czech towns; textile workshops started to be established there.

The historical centre of Česká Lípa was declared a historical town reserve. Plenty of beautiful houses with extraordinary Art Nouveau and Empire-style facades have been renovated there recently. The plague column with the Holy Trinity, created by Jan Kristián, a sculptor from Žitava, dates back to 1681. In the 18th century statues of country patrons were added, namely St. Wenceslas, St. Vojtěch, St. Jan Nepomucký and St. Florian - a patron saint protecting people from fire.
