The Krkonose Mountains are among the most popular tourist spots in the Czech Republic, and by far the most visited Czech mountains. In addition, they are the highest mountain range, their peaks are covered by the largest snow cover, they are the only ones with a high mountain character in our country, the longest river of the Czech Republic originates there, and we can find the highest waterfall there. This 600-million-year-old mountain range with incredibly diverse nature is protected as a unique UNESCO biosphere reserve, as it is home to a large number of rare species of plants and animals.
In Krokonoše Mountains we can find steep glacial karsts and vast mountain meadows, rocky ridges and picturesque valleys lined with log houses. In the winter season, the Giant Mountains offer high-quality and varied conditions for skiing, and in the summer they are a popular destination for hiking and cycling.
The Krkonoše Mountains are also important for the republic from an economic point of view, especially thanks to the year-round popular tourism in the region. Despite their relatively small area, they generate multibillion-dollar sales, comparable to large foreign tourist centers, and are thus an important source of income for entrepreneurs and the Czech state itself. In addition, every year the Krkonoše Mountains experience new records in visitor numbers, so further dynamic growth in the economic importance of this mountain range can be assumed. In 2020, a total of over 4 million tourists visited the mountains, making the Giant Mountains one of the most popular national parks not only in the Czech Republic. Visitor numbers in the summer were also record high, thanks in part to the significant growth in the use of e-bikes, which are a great way to explore the Krkonoše Mountains.
The Krkonoše Mountains are beautiful and important at the same time, their overall importance at least equals the nearby Alpine mountains. It is therefore necessary to protect this unique wealth of our state, develop it meaningfully and take care of it. The Krkonoše mountains do not belong to us, we have only been given the beautiful duty to take care of them, they have been entrusted to us by mother nature, and so we must try to be able to pass them on to our children and future generations. According to legend, the mountain is guarded by the mythical spirit Krakonoš. However, we at Aurum believe that we ourselves must actively help in the development and subsequent care of this beautiful, unique and completely unique part of our country.
The entire Aurum resort and related activities are conceived as a sustainable activity. As part of this, we have long-term cooperation with a number of private and public institutions for the support of the region, within which we discuss and consult the development of the resort, and we use our financial and human resources to independently support the Krkonoše Mountains so that they remain as wonderful as they are today.
On beald of #bajecnekrkonose, the Resort Aurum team is looking forward to welcoming you as its guest.
