Turn-by-turn directions

From Havlíčkův Brod to Žižka’s monument

Havlíčkův, formerly Německý or Smilův Brod, was originally founded as a market village on the river Sázava. As in Jihlava, silver was mined here. Visitors may be attracted by its picturesque square with Baroque houses and the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary located at the top of the square. You can also visit the Vysočina Museum in Havlíčkův Brod, which is located in Havlíčkův dům (Havlíček’s House) on the square or Štafl’s bastion. From Havlíček square head to the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and the Budoucnost (Future) park, from where you take cycle track 4157and go to the banks of the river Sázava. At the bank at the culture house turn left, cycle track 19 connects here which will lead you out of the town through Herlify, Bartoušov, Dlouhá Ves and Hesovto Přibyslav. At the intersection with Tyršova Street turn right and enter the square. In the local castle you can see a firemen’s museum, or a Gothic tower from 1497, which is also a symbol of the town. In the chateau park you can find a cavalry statue of Jan Žižka, who died in 1424 near Přibyslav. Originally, this poor hetman of a South Bohemian stronghold became a commander, and even when he was blind he threatened his adversaries. From the square head back down to Tyršova Street, but go straight along cycle track 4122 out of town. Above Přibyslav, a steep ascent to awaits you, the highest point of that day’s route. As legends say, the Hussite commander died just near Přibyslav.
