Jested Hotel Cosmic Lamps by Otakar Binar
Ještěd’s overall aesthetics make it seem as if it belongs in a science fiction film.
Situated in the northern mountains of the Czech Republic, Hotel Ještěd dominates the skyline of the Liberec region. Reaching an altitude over 1,000 meters, it has been a significant landmark and place of historic importance.
