Tourist attractions

Benecko belongs to the highest situated villages and municipalities in the Krkonoše Mountains, two thirds of the village is located in the third zone of the Krkonoše National Park, and you will nowhere in the Czech Republic find more sunny days throughout the year than just in Benecko.  The first written record concerning Benecko can be dated back to the year 1628, however archaeological discoveries have proved beyond reasonable doubt the region settlement no later than during the 13th century thanks to Lords of Valdstein who built at that time the Štěpanice Castle in the strategic place of the Žalý Mountain slope, as well as a medieval walled-in settlement serving for defence of a trade route that was probably situated in one of parts of Benecko village, in the Rychlov settlement.
