Natural sights

Among natural matters of interests in surroundings of Harrachov certainly belongs Mumlavský vodopád (waterfall), where the wildly flowing river Mumlava has created in its riverbed unique dished shapes (so called „evorzní tvary“ or giant pots. Directly in Harrachov you can find a few important memorable trees such as the elm near the hotel Harrachovka.

Another matter of interest of this area is the river Jizera between Mýto (down part of Harrachov) and Rokytnice where this river flows through deep, rock Jizera mine.

Mumlavský vodopád

There are ones of the vastest natural mixed mountain forests with dominant beeches. Autumn colours of beeches in Jizerský důl are as unforgettable as spring blossoming of white colt feet, snow flakes, wind flowers, wild garlic, paradise plants and later blue bells that create individual colour of surrounding river floodplain. However it is not only flora that Jizerský důl and lower situated places in the valley of Jizera are exceptionally rich on. You can also find the same “giant pots “ as in the riverbed of Mumlava.

There is also a chapel of St. Elizabeth with glass bell from 1915. The Imperial church of St. Wenceslaw from (1822-1828) is also decorated with glass of this glass factory (chandelier, altar). Mining was finished in 1992 when the mine (fluor, heavy spar and galena) was closed on west hillside of Ptačinec (950 m. a. s.).

Traditional line is also forestry (a forest enterprise, a forest school and a saw-mill).
The role of the most important industrial sphere has been taken over by tourism industry.
