Transport and Parking

Krkonošská street

Vrchlabi is a local centre of administration and services, therefore, many people come here for shopping, to the authorities, as well as for culture and tourism. The town’s navigation system to the centre, hospital and large shopping centres is very good and the car parks are well marked.

Where to Park?

Have you come by car? Don’t worry, there are plenty of smaller car parks in the town. Those closest to the town centre are paid, others are free. The larger car parks near the monastery and the culture centre are 5 minutes’ walking distance from the main square.

The car parks near Aquacentrum and in the Vejsplachy resort are larger, but further from the centre. Nevertheless, walking is healthy :-)

If you come in a caravan or campervan, we recommend using the campsites at Lisci farma or Vejsplachy, or you can park for one night at the Vejsplachy car park or near the Strelnice culture centre. These two car parks large and free but have no electricity or drains.

How to Pay the Parking Fee?

Most of the car parks are equipped with pay and display machines, so it’s useful to have some coins. You can also pay via the EasyPark application – virtual pay meter, download here. Parking disks for short-term parking can be bought in the Information Centre.
