In the upper part of Rokytnice nad Jizerou, in a great place for a recreation centre of the biggest ski area in Bohemia, an urbanistically perfect self-sufficient square was built in 1996. The square is formed by 11 four-storey houses lined with an arcade with shops, restaurants and other services.
In the whole area of the Upper Square, the visitors can find a high-quality accommodation in 60 apartments for more than 250 guests.
Wooden gables of the houses resemble traditional architecture of the Giant Mountains; however, many building elements (bay windows, gazebos, balconies) approach an alpine style. Thus, there is a space evoking a sense of a centre – certain base for a comfortable stay and trips to the mountains for holidaymakers of all age groups.
The square is located at the foot of Lysá hora (1343 m a.s.l.), where the biggest ski-centre was built. It is equipped with a 2200-metre-long high-capacity four-seated chairlift and a transport capacity of 1800 skiers per hour. In close proximity of the square, there is a sufficient number of parking spaces (even guarded), garages, post office, self-service shop, bus station, pub, restaurant, ski schools, sauna, fitness centre, sports shops, and ski and mountain bike rentals. Children will be happy to use three ski lifts Poma, which are located 100 m from the square.
Immediately after completion of the construction, not only did the Upper Square become an accommodation base for a high number of holidaymakers, but also a main starting point for all kinds of winter and summer sports in the western part of the Giant Mountains.
