About Nové Město pod Smrkem

Nové Město pod Smrkem is a town at the north foot of Jizera Mountains, near the border with Poland. It was founded in the 16th Century in the vicinity to tin ore mines at the nearby mountain. Later on from the 17th century, when the deposits were depleted, the textile industry become the main source of livelihood.

After the WWII, similarly to other places in this region, most of the original German population was displaced and their houses were taken by Czech and Polish newcomers.
