Městská Hora Hill

Beroun Sights and Attractions Nature Attractions
Městská hora (Town Mountain) is located in the centreof the town. Mighty advanced fortifications were built in the Middle Age on a hill with a height of 291 m above sea level. It used to be called the Priest Mouuntain (Kněží hora) according to the large area of land owned by the church. Thanks to the care provided by the Decoration Society and the Czech Tourist Club starting in the 1880s, the Town Mountain was gradually converted into a forest park. A fifteen-metre reinforced concrete gazebo was built in 1936 over the municipal water conduit reservoir. In 2000, the city built a bear yard on Town Mountain, in which it breeds three of its heraldic animals. Nowadays, there is only one of them left -  Kuba - the two bears sadly died. Vojta in 2016 and Matěj in 2023.
The peaceful woodland park offers two childrens´ playgrounds and a stall selling refreshment.
