Cycling and Mountain Biking
Within easy reach
Many places of interest are within easy reach owing to the "strategic" location of Opočno at the foothills of the Orlické Hory Mountains. If you are interested in theatre performances, various exhibitions or concerts, you can visit Hradec Králové (within 30 minutes' drive by car or bus). If you like sports rather than cultural events, you can go to the top of the Orlické Hory Mountains or to the Deštné skiing resort which will take about the same time.
Perhaps, you will want to meet interesting people. We can recommend you eco-farmers, skillful craftsmen or artists living and working in this region.
Right on the spot
Opočno itself has also much to offer. You can enjoy the Opočno Traditional Fair in summer, watch falconers' at work in autumn, and participate in St. Nicholas's Eve in the central square in winter. You can follow the footsteps of František Kupka regarded as the most famous Czech painter today.
In summer, you can have a swim at the swimming pool near the romantic Broumar Lake, in the evening, you can go to play bowling or to watch a concert of classical music.
