Bukovina University Training Center

The Bukovina compound lies in the Bohemian Paradise micro-region, close to Turnov, within a distance of approximately 1.5 km from the municipality of Hrubá Skála. The compound is situated at close quarters of Hrubá Skála chateau, built on a rocky sandstone massif in the second half of the 14th century. Equally renowned is the Hrubá Skála rock city.

Hrubá Skála municipality lies within a distance of about 1 km off the state thoroughfare connecting Turnov and Jičín. Coach and train connection to and from the municipality is good. From the municipality, well accessible are all touristy venues situated in the neighbourhood, such as the Trosky and Kost castles, the town of Turnov, the Kozákov hill, the Prachovské Rocks and Klokočské Rocks, and other natural and cultural must-sees.

Though there is no industry in the municipality, tourism flourishes with its fabulous nature abundant in rock mountains, plethora of ponds, bathing opportunities, and an array of castles and chateaux spread in the vicinity – all that keeps attracting visitors. The place is renowned for its huge opportunities for rambling and cycle touring. In winter, cross-country skiers will bowl along the magnificent terrains, and neither lovers of downhill skiing will likely to come up short – with the Giant Mountains easily accessible therefrom, or with the ski slope at nearby Kozákov within easy reach. Information on accommodation is provided by the Operational and technical section of UJEP. For UJEP core staff, more detailed information is available on the intranet (IMIS)
