Izera (Jizera) River


The Izera (Czech Jizera) is a river that begins on the border between Poland and the Czech Republic. It develops from the confluence of the Great Izera in the Izera Mountains and the Little Izera in the Giant Mountains (Krkonoše), and flows into the Labe (Elbe) in the Bohemia.


From at least 17th century there was here a path named “Stara Droga Celna” (Old Road of Duty). It led from Szklarska Poręba to the glassworks in Orle and then beside the Granicznik rock through the border bridge on the Izera river to the Jizerka village – famous from its precious stones mining and glassworks. After the Word War II the border between Poland and Czechoslovakia was strictly protected and the tourism had practically stopped on the Polish side of the Izera Mountains. The bridge on the Izera river was completely destroyed at the beginning of the 1980s. After the fall of communism and after the long years of struggling with an administrative and official procedures, the wooden bridge was rebuild, and the tourist crossing between Orle and Jizerka have been opened.
