Information Centers


The regional tourist information centre (RTIC) is located in the middle of Turnov in the „náměstí Českého ráje“ square (the corner of square and of the 5. května street) in the house „U zlatého beránka“. The info is part of the Tourism section of the municipality, and so it arranges also operations for the city Turnov in addition to services for visitors of the Bohemian paradise. The section also secures the operation of Turnov's synagogue, which is accessible for public in the season. It isn't used for religious purposes more. It introduces the Jew's history in Turnov, and also cultural events happen here – concerts and exhibitions.
