Observatory and Planetarium in Hradec Králové

Public observatory and digital planetarium, founded by Hradec Králové Region. It is equipped with Velvet projection system by Carl Zeiss Jena and a number of telescopes for daytime and nighttime observations.

Both the observatory and planetarium are located on the southern outskirts of Hradec Králové – regional capital of eastern Bohemia. One of the most beautiful places was selected for the building – on the ridge between Zámeček and New Hradec Králové. A breathtaking view opens onto the lowlands of river Labe and to the south on a smooth valley with mirrors of Datlík and Roudnička lakes. The bulid-up of the original observatory was held from 1947 till 1961. One branch of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute – Solar and Ozonospheric Observatory is also housed here.
