The exhibition "The City of the Most Beautiful Winter" can be seen in the Museum of National History for Vysoké nad Jizerou and its surroundings until March 31, 2021.

The exhibition maps the transformation of life in the mountains during the 20th century. Along with the emancipation of the population, the improvement of living conditions, the thinking of ordinary people has also changed. Even they no longer conceived of life as a set of duties, began to feel the need and "right" to active leisure, which until then was only the prerogative of higher classes and nobility. At the end of the 19th century, winter sports also came to the Czech lands from the Nordic countries. But only the skis and their great, very fast popularity for their time, permanently changed the "winter in the mountains". The inaccessible and life-threatening snowy plains of our highest mountains have become a place of winter fun, sports and, last but not least, winter tourism.
