Hlinky (718 m)
The village with a fascinating view is situated relatively high. In the 17th century it was called Schützenhäusel, later Leimgruben and after 1918 is got the name Hlinky. The name Hlinky refers to the local kaolin and clay mining of the 18th century. It is said that the foundation of the village was initiated by the convent which was called the Virgin Court (Panenský dvůr). It was also called Kleinhof and Frauenhof. The first record of the court dates from 1622. (Today it is a hardly recognizable ruin to the west of the villige on the route Bukovina-Buchwald).
