Jílové u Prahy

If the Klondike is too far for you, how about going to Jílové?

Can you see it shining? Let yourself be lured by it as the famous English Renaissance alchemist Edward Kelley was. In Jílové u Prahy there has always been enough gold... Even today you can take a walk along mine tunnels that the ancient miners dug. In the past they used to live in several mining communities scattered all around. By the 13th century they joined together and the golden era of the golden settlement was initiated by Charles IV when he granted it the status of a royal town in 1350. The promising development was disrupted by the Hussite Religious Wars in the first half of the 15th century. But afterwards the town got going again – and thanks to it Master Kelley decided to reside here for a while. You can meet him in the Mince (Coin) building, which houses the regional museum. Mining tools have been turned into mere exhibits, which is a good thing. Today it would be hardly possible to have a mining town that was at the same time picturesque.
