WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU TO SOKOLOV – A TOWN LOCATED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SPA TRIANGLE LYING ON THE CONFLUENCE OF THE OHŘE AND SVATAVA RIVERS. THE TOWN’S LOCATION PREDETERMINES IT TO BE A BASE FOR TOURISTS TO MAKE TRIPS OUT INTO THE BEAUTIES OF THE SLAVKOV FORESTS AND THE WESTERN PART OF THE ORE MOUNTAINS.

Sokolov offers walks through the old town, which can be combined with a visit to the monastic St Anthony of Padua Church. There is also a park with a chateau, a visit to the regional museum or a view over the town from the Hard lookout tower. The city also has a wide spectrum of activities for those that love sports and culture Sokolov and its surroundings have become part of a new application for mobile equipment called Turista v mobile (Tourist in a Mobile), which makes a visit to the city all the more pleasant by showing sights of interest. It can be downloaded here: http://www.turistavmobilu.cz.

The first version of the application helps when planning excursions and visits to interesting places around Sokolov and the Czech Republic in general. It can also provide routes for cycling or inline skating. The application gives a destination and the best route to it (marked in red) pointing out sights of interest along the way. It gives information about the towns and their most interesting points including photographs and contacts, cultural events and links to web pages or important phone numbers. Every day the application adds more and more sites, routes and points of interest. At the moment it is necessary to have a faster internet connection for the application to work. The town is also in the SmartCity application bundle allowing information on Sokolov to be read by its citizens - such as news, cultural events, information about the town’s council – as well as visitors – such as interactive info-maps, important sights, photographs, tips for accommodation and dining. Sokolov – Smart City can be downloaded at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details id=com.mediaworks.smartcity

The Sokolov Infocentre, the Sokolov House of Culture and the Turista v mobilu team wish you all great walks and experiences.
