The southeast part of the county is formed by well-preserved nature of the Novohradské Mountains which are popular especially with hikers and cyclists.
The town of Nové Hrady is the natural centre of the mountains. The Terezino Valley with an artificial waterfall built in 1817 is located nearby.
The Kraví mountain (originally the Kamenná mountain) belongs to incommutable dominants of the Novohradské Mountains. You will find rock walls, a number of isolated rocks and the famous bizarre granolithic formation – a 10 metres tall “Napoleon´s head“ on its top in the altitude of 953 metres.
The Žumberk medieval fortress with a permanent exhibition of folk hand painted furniture from the 18th and 19th century and a working technical monument Buškův Hamr near the town of Trhové Sviny belong to significant objects of this part of the region.
