Even don't try to look for this town (and area) in Lonely Planet or other travel books on Czech Republic. I am dissapointed about the Czech guides, they all skipped this lovely Czech area! OK, it motivated me to put up this huge page.
I passed through Jablunkov (Appletown) many times driving towards southern Europe as the town was located along main north - south highway of central Europe: E-75 which went from almost North Cape, Norway to Athens, Greece. The lazy and lovely town was located in north-eastern corner of Czech Republic, very close to both Poland and Slovakia.
Last time we stopped there together with Kathy (Kodi01) and Urszula (matcrazy0) on lovely town square. We took a walk along the town and we were doing small shopping to spend our last Czech crowns.
The name "Jablunkov" derives from Czech word "jablko" or so which means an apple. There were quite many apple trees there, indeed.
One bottle ((0.5 l = 16.91 oz) of delicious Czech beer costed from 6.80 to 19.5 Kc in local grocery (Oct. 2003, add 3Kc for a bottle). That time it was (cash +/- 4% rate):
$0.26 - $0.75
0.22 - 0.63 Euros
1.00 - 2.87 Polish zloty.
Will they rise prices up when Czech enters European Union on 1 May 2004? That is the question!

- Cons:No luxury, nothing of particular interest there!
