The spa town Lázně Bělohrad is situated at an altitude of 291 m on the river Javorka in the foothills of the Krkonoše mountains in eastern Bohemia, about 15 km east of the district town Jičín. The municipality has a population of about 3,700 (2021).
Bělohrad originated from the settlement originally called Nová Ves ('new village', in German Neudorf), which was first mentioned in 1267. The castle in the 15 th century was mentioned as castellum francum. After frequent changes in the ownership, a new castle was built in 1556, which, due to its white masonry, was called 'white castle', i.e. Bělohrad. In 1722 the village obtained the status of a market town and was officially renamed Bělohrad. The first bath house on the left bank of the Javorka river was established in 1872. From 1885 onward, also mud baths were administered to the guests of the spa. A large spa house was built in 1891. In the 1905s the name was changed to Lázně Bělohrad, officially recognising the place as a spa town.
