Chateau Mcely is an ideal destination to explore some
of the UNESCO sights and other favorite travel goals.
The capital city of Prague, 60 km (37 mil)
Prague. The settlement of Prague and its surroundings was continuous from the early Palaeolithic until the Latenian period. With the arrival of the Celts, oppida began to appear, which were centres of settlement, administration, cults, manufacture, trade and also served as fortified strongholds. There is a school of thought that states that it was the Celtic Boj tribe that provided the basis for the name Bohemia. In the second half of the sixth century the first Slavonic tribes arrived. In the ninth century the ruling Přemyslid dynasty moved their family seat, thereby laying the foundation stone to this place with the role of the seat of the princely and later the Royal Czech lands. Prague is an important urban monument reservation.
The historic core, 866 hectares in size, encompasses the unique city ensemble of the Prague Castle and Hradčany, Malá Strana (Lesser Side) including Karlův most (Charles Bridge), Staré Město (Old Town) with Josefov (the preserved section of the former Jewish Town), Nové Město (New Town), Vyšehrad and each of the monuments within these areas. It was inscribed in the UNESCO List in 1992.
Kutná hora, 50 km (31 mil)
Kutná Hora is, as its name suggests, associated with the mining (kutání in Czech) of silver. In 1142 the first Cistercian monastery in the Czech lands was established in the nearby village of Sedlec and at the end of the 13th century the original mining settlement of Cuthna antiqua – Old Kutna - soon became a wealthy royal city. In 1300 King Václav II issued the mining legislation „Ius regale montanorum“ and in the same year he initiated a coinage reform. One century later another king, Václav IV, issued the Kutná Hora Decree, which amended the proportion of votes at Prague University in favour of the Czechs.
Kutná Hora is therefore rightly considered to be the treasure-house of the land whose wealth gave strength to the expansion of the Kingdom of Bohemia. Its history and uniqueness were recognised in 1995 when the city was inscribed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Heritage List.
Bohemian Paradise (Český ráj), 35 km (22 mil)
There are not many places in Europe that offer as many natural attractions and beauties as Bohemian Paradise (Český ráj). At first glance, this hospitable landscape is scattered with dramatic rock formations, deep shady valleys, meandering rivers and quiet ponds surrounded by forests.
Geologically unique objects such as Bozkovské dolomitové jeskyně (caves), paleontological, mineralogical and archaeological locations and numerous plant and animal species deserve both our attention and our protection. Bohemian Paradise is the oldest protected landscape area in the Czech Republic and in 2005 it became the core of a new UNESCO Geopark.
