Where to head next?

Dvořák often enjoyed walks to the nearby pilgrimage place Holy Mountain. Following in his footsteps, venture further in Central Bohemia, perhaps to his birthplace in Nelahozeves, where you can visit another memorial directly in Dvořák’s childhood home. However, if you crave something different, stop by the Mining Museum in Příbram, just a few kilometers from Vysoká.
