Welcome to Hradec Kralove, the beautiful royal city on the Labe River

The enchanting scenery at the confluence of the Labe and Orlice rivers, an eventful history of one of the oldest Czech cities, a convenient position only 100 km from Prague, and an unusually elegant combination of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and modern architecture: that is Hradec Králové, a city that is definitely worth a visit!

White Tower and Cathedral of the Holy Spirit – An impressive bell tower touching the skies

The White Tower standing at the very centre of the city is a majestic dominant feature of Hradec. It earned its name thanks to the bright colour of the sandstone it is constructed from. This Renaissance tower reaches the height of 72 metres and visitors can not only enjoy a beautiful view of Hradec. In the vicinity of the tower, there is the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.

Modern Art Gallery – The legacy of a merciful clergyman

The Hradec gallery is home to quite a unique collection within Czechia as its depositary does not include any socialist realism (unlike most other collections). The gallery has a coherent collection of Czech cubism and a lot of surrealistic works of art from the 1920s to 1970s.

Cruise along the Labe – Against the river stream on a steam boat

You can get on a paddle steamer, such as Primátor (Mayor), Královna Eliška (Queen Elizabeth) or Pirátská plachetnice (Pirate’s Sailboat), and go on an hour-long cruise. For more info click here.

Our tips around Hradec Králové

If you have an extra day or two, you can take a trip to nearby Třebechovice pod Orebem. The local Museum of Nativity Scenes has the most admired Czech nativity scene in its collection: called Proboštův. It contains about 2,000 carved parts! The Renaissance Chateau in Častolovice is also worth visiting. The carved cassette ceilings there are simply breath-taking. And lastly, we also recommend visiting the monumental castle in Kunětická hora or the Hospital Kuks.
