Harrachov is a town in Semily District, Liberec Region, in the northern Czech Republic, close to the border with Poland.GeographyIt is situated on the Mumlava River, a left tributary of the Jizera within the Krkonoše mountain range of the Sudetes, whose crest forms the Czech-Polish border near the Elbe river's source.Located about 700m above sea level, Harrachov is one of the most popular Czech ski resorts including the internationally used Čerťák ski jumping hill (including flying hill); several winter sport events take place in Harrachov regularly. The whole region is of increasing importance for alpine tourism in Central Europe.The European route E65 from Prague goes through the town and crosses the border to Szklarska Poręba in Poland near the village of Jakuszyce.HistoryThe first written reference dates back to the 17th century, when German settlers founded a village Dörfl there. In 1712 one Elias Müller from neighbouring Seifenbach (Rýžoviště) received the privilege by the local landowner Count Aloys Thomas Raimund Harrach to establish glassworks here, whereafter the adjacent settlement was renamed Harrachsdorf.
