You can also see a number of exhibitions staged in the exhibition room within the town hall building.

The historic heart of the town Frýdlant

One of the most prominent monuments in the town apart from the castle and the town hall is the Dean’s Church of the Invention of the Holy Cross (chrám Nalezení sv. Kříže), which is found on the right bank of the River Smědá. The former town salt house, where salt was imported from nearby Halle nad Saalou, can also be seen close to the church. There are another two, younger churches in the town – the Church of Mary Magdalene (kostel sv. Máří Magdaleny) in Frýdlant-Větrov and the evangelic church from the beginning of the twentieth century that stands on the slope of the nearby station. A whole host of typical burgher houses have been preserved in their original form. These are mainly found on T. G. Masaryk Square and in Zámecká Street. Old, wooden houses with timber frames are also evident here and there.

, an image opens in a new windowThis was the first village in the Czech Republic to build two of the most up-to-date windmills, with gearless technology and synchronous generator. Another important benefit to the environment is the education possibilities associated with the wind power stations here. The environmental information centre at the foot of the lower wind power station provides the ideal location for educating the public on the use of renewable sources.

Windmill, Jindřichovice pod Smrkem

The windmill was built to help the Vlk family add to its equipment at their farmstead (the Jitřenka eco-village) so that it could become self-sufficient, even when processing grain. The inner walls of the mill are used to display photographs of all maintained windmills, mills and wind pumps in the Czech Republic.

Museum of Rural Life (Muzeum venkovského života), Jindřichovice pod Smrkem

This museum, which looks at the lives of the rural population before the industrial revolution, is one of the activities run by Lunaria, a society interested in environmental, spiritual and cultural revitalisation in the Frýdlant Promontory, the Jizera Mountains and the surrounding area. The museum familiarises visitors with the history of the Frýdlant area and Jindřichovice and presents a number of exhibits that were actually used in the past.
