Points of interest

The first record of Janovice village dates back to 1464 when Janovice was part of Starojice domain. The municipal seal from the year 1749 carries the sign of a stalk with five flowers growing from three hills. A wooden mill used to stand on the uphill of the village. It was by far the most visible dominant of the landscape. In its surroundings, you can visit Starý Jičín castle, Svinec Nature Reserve or geologically interesting Picrit-Almond Lavas by Kojetín and Torus Lavas in Straník Natural Monuments.
