Lots of history and beautiful nature in one day….all that with the use of train.

The history of Tabor is very rich: it was established in the 15th century as a fortress during the Hussite revolution. It was named after a biblical mount of Tabor in Israel, and was meant to be a commonwealth governed only by law of God. We will learn all about this fascinating history in local Gothic Town Hall, which is a museum of this 15th century revolutionary movement, and we will also visit the famous Tabor catacombs from 16th century.
Highlight of the trip is a hike up along the Stations of the Cross to a famous pilgrimage site, breath taking Baroque Klokoty Monastery. Next is a hike through peaceful pine forest down to the valley of river Luznice, and lunch in a local restaurant on the river bank.
This trip will show you the true countryside of the Czech Republic. Even though Tabor is a beautiful town with fascination history, it is not a major spot for international tourists yet.
