This article deals with American travels of Čeněk Paclt (1813–1887), who was born in the town of Turnov. Č. Paclt belongs to the half-forgotten travelers of the nineteenth century, although in professional circles, his name is known. Among Czech adventurers and travelers, however, he has an important position, because he holds one primacy. Č. Paclt is also the first Czech, who has provably traveled through all five inhabited continents and has left written evidence about his journeys. He came to the American land in the year 1846. Č. Paclt traveled over Mexico, Brazil and large part of the East Coast of the United States of America. He went through Mexican territory during the Mexican- American War (1846–1848) as an American soldier. After that Č. Paclt travelled along the East Coast of the USA, where he visited many major cities (Washington, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, etc.). He was on the American continent in the years 1846–1857. Then he sailed to Australia. Č. Paclt later undertook journeys to New Zealand, India and the last seventeen years of his life he spent in South Africa.
