Czech Destinations: Macha Lake is called a lake but – in fact – it is a pond. It is the largest pond in Bohemia. The pond was founded in 1366 by King Charles IV. There are two little islands in the lake – called Mysi and the Kachni – that are connected with several local legends. The little islands are valuable bird localities and access is not permitted.
Czech Landmarks: Frydlant Castle and Chateau is one of the most frequently visited historic buildings in the Czech Republic. In the course of time, the originally Gothic castle was rebuilt into a large Renaissance chateau with abundant decorations and great and extremely valuable collections. The historical houses in front of the castle are noteworthy as well.
