Frýdlantský výběžek is a region in the north of our country. It is bordered to the south by the Jizera Mountains, with which Frýdlant is historically linked, and to the west, north and east by the Czech-Polish state border. The administrative centre of the whole Frýdlantský výběžek is the town of Frýdlant. It is a town with a rich history. In the 6th century, a watchtower was built on a basalt rock, which later became a castle. Today, Frýdlant Castle and Chateau is one of the most visited historical buildings in the Czech Republic.
The Frýdlant region is a unique region of fields, meadows and forests. The whole area is influenced by the proximity of the Jizera Mountains, the landscape is interwoven with many streams (Malý and Velký Štolpich, Safírový potok), along which stand historic houses and cottages, half-timbered buildings, large farmhouses, barns and sandstone tombstones. The surroundings of Frýdlant are ideal for hikers, cyclists and climbers.
