Jicin is a pleasant picturesque town northeast of Prague in the Czech Republic. In 1710 the town became a property of the House of Trauttmansdorff, which meant the arrival of the period of High Baroque, during which many constructions were completed.  The historical center has been declared a Municipal Reserve because of its big well-preserved cobblestoned rectangular square with a Gothic street layout, remnants of fortifications and arcade Renaissance and Baroque houses. After World War II, during communist rule, many ugly prefabricated apartment complexes were built. The town is also connected with the popular fairy-tale character of Rumcajs. (Rumcais is a children’s book folk hero, a good-natured thief.)
