Official Emblem O P O Č N O

Opočno is quite a small town in size, but pretty huge in cultural meaning. There is a big castle of the Colloredo-Mansfeld noble family and many tourists come in the summer months to see it. The town is situated in eastern Bohemia.
Surrounding countryside has a hilly atmosphere of low mountains covered with forests and is very suitable for trips and camping throughout the year.
Close to the town there is a large pond called Broumar, suitable for windsurfing, boating or fishing. It is not clean enough for swimming. Fortunately, there are nice clean swimming pools close to it.
