Trip of the month

Moses Spring – Emperor's Stone

Thanks to the Armillaria chapter of the ČSOP and the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, the ecologically very valuable region between Jablonec nad Nisou and Liberec has as of 2010 its own educational trail, on which hikers learn interesting facts about nature, wildlife, the importance of forest land, and its inhabitants. Visitors may also put their insights and knowledge about nature to the test by answering a number of quiz questions.

Unforgettable natural beauty and almost forgotten history along one educational trail!

14.11.2022 At Slavkov, near the town of Uherský Brod, the local 'Pantoflíček' chapter of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation opened a new educational trail, named Kronika slavkovské krajiny (Slavkov – A Landscape’s Chronicle). The trail introduces visitors to the natural treasures of the area, but in no small way also presents the municipality’s partisan resistance towards the end of World War II, for which Slavkov is duly famous.
