With a long history dating back to the Middle Ages, Liberec served as an important centre for trade and textiles in the 19th century, contributing to its economic growth and cultural development. It’s home to one of the oldest zoos in the Czech Republic and the futuristic Jested Tower designed by architect Karel Hubacek (both a television transmitter and a hotel, you can reach the landmark by cable car). Close to the Jizera Mountains, the city provides ample opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and cycling and is a hub for winter sports.
Pytloun Grand Hotel Imperial
Dating back to the 1930s, the Pytloun Grand has been redesigned with a contemporary eye, yet calls upon its art deco and almost constructivist composition heritage among its motifs. Superior doubles through to premium design suites can be booked, with bold modern features, soundproofing and silent powered blackout curtains as standard. Guests can enjoy a buffet spread and evening meals at the Zlatý Kohout restaurant, which specialises in Czech and international cuisine. The long narrow space has floor-to-ceiling windows allowing diners to watch the world go by over a meal.
