A visit to the great mountain village and winter sports town of Špindlerův Mlýn

Downhill skiing and snowboarding are immensely popular in the Czech Republic and there are a slew of mountain ranges and resorts to choose from. Skiers can opt for ski hills like Ještěd near Prague or centres further east, such as Dolní Morava. But today, we visit Špindlerův Mlýn in the Krkonoše Mountains, one of the most popular ski destinations in the country. We’ll check out the ski hill, take a short tour of the town and even bomb down a sled track.
