About Nepomuk

The pilgrimage town of Nepomuk, birthplace of the best-known saint of the Czech Baroque, St. John of Nepomuk, offers a wide variety of experiences. You can visit one of the many local museums, see the Church of St. John of Nepomuk, or take a stroll down the Municipal Educational Trail or the Zelená Hora Educational Trail. If the Zelená Hora Chateau is not open, you can make a stop in Klášter, where you can see the remains of the former Cistercian monastery, relax at the lake or go to the children’s playground. In Nepomuk, there are also several playgrounds and sports facilities, municipal pools and an amusement park. Nepomuk is also the ideal starting point for trips to the surrounding area. There are a number of natural monuments near the town, including the recently established Brdy Protected Landscape. Not far from Nepomuk, you can visit the Historical Model Train Track in Vrčeň. You can also choose to climb the observation tower near Železný Újezd, which offers amazing views of the surrounding area. In ideal conditions, you can see as far as the Alps.

 

The U Zeleného Stromu Švejk restaurant offers an exquisite culinary experience or you can visit the Angusfarm restaurant, well-known for steaks from their environmentally-friendly cattle farm in nearby Soběsuky.

 

Accommodation is available in several guesthouses, the three-star U Zeleného Stromu Hotel, or the Nový Rybník campground. A good reason to make this region a destination for your summer holiday is the fact that Nepomuk is the warmest place in the southern part of the Pilsen Region. There are a large number of cultural events that are worth visiting, not only in the summer season.
