Town History

Although the first written document about a settlement on the Nisa river called Jablonec dates back to as early as 1356, Jablonec did not achieve the importance of the settlements established in more fertile locations of the kingdom for the whole of the Middle Ages.

Station 5: Memorable beech - V Aleji street

Human society has always attributed an extraordinary significance to trees. Their significance for our landscape is also reflected in the Act on Nature and Landscape Protection (114/1992 Coll.) which stipulates that the trees growing outside forests (forest management is governed by its own legislation) are protected against malicious cutting. In addition, the trees extraordinary in terms of growth, aesthetic or historical importance may be declared memorable and as such provided with a high degree of protection.

Station 12: The Kokonínská street

After passing through the forest we have come to a rise on the edge of the town. At this point we have crossed the border of the cadastre of Vrkoslavice and Jablonec nad Nisou. The Kokonínská street steeply falls down to the Nisa river valley. It is one of the steepest Jablonec streets.

Station 11: The brewery ponds (Pivovarské rybníky)

Among the most significant buildings in Vrkoslavice was the brewery. It was built between 1833 and 1835 by Johann von Römisch, the then owner of the Malá skála estate which included also Vrkoslavice and Jablonec. When in connection with the new regional structure introduced in 1850, Vrkoslavice became an autonomous municipality “the Liberec-Vratislavice-Jablonec“ brewery was for them an important source of tax income.

The Devil's Stone where we are now standing used to be such a significant dominant of Vrkoslavice in the past that it even appeared in the unofficial shield of the village and on the municipal stamp.

We now stand in front of a small gneissic rock which projects about seven meters above its surrounding and offers visitors an interesting view. Remarkable is particularly the geological difference of the rock from its surrounding which is primarily granite.
