Stribro and surroundings
The venerable city of Stribro was founded in the 12th century, above the beautiful valley of the Mze river. As the name suggests (stribro means silver in Czech), its history is connected with the mining for rare ores. Mining flourished the most in the 16th century – at the same time as the pride of the square and the whole city – the renaissance town hall with the grafitti decoration – was built. The city centre has been declared a town heritage reserve. However, Stribro does not offer only historic sights, but also rich sports options, for example in the area of the Hracholusky dam or in the recreational facilities of Butov and Vranov. Close by, there is the Friendship cycling route (a part of the Paris – Strasbourg – Prague route).
Every year, many people come to take part in public events such as the mining parade in the light of torches, miners’ lamps and lanterns in February, the festival of amateur theatre ensembles, the town celebration in June, and European open-doors days held every September.
