It is a beautiful area, right on the side of a lake. We have a holiday house in
and took a group of 20 there last year. We had a great time; the river runs through Polom and we took a canoe trail down it and went on a horse and cart ride. My group camped overnight in a field by the river. The locals were very friendly and sold them fresh honey.

… Go to Kuznice. It's really beautiful. Although book in advance at Orbis for a ticket on the cable car, we queued for 3 hours in minus temperatures!
