This place, and the village of Bosyně, about 3.5 km away, are now connected via a new educational trail, "Poklady Harasova" (Treasures of Harasov), designed to highlight a number of local 'secrets' and to captivate and entertain the entire family.

About the project

NET4GAS is both a reliable and safe gas transmission system operator, and at the same time pursues a responsible policy aimed at protecting nature and the environment for future generations. The commercial operations of NET4GAS are very closely connected with the issue of nature conservation, as during both the construction and the operation of its gas infrastructure it must comply with strict environmental standards. In fact, its concern for the natural environment extends even beyond the requirements of legislation, meaning rather a question of corporate social responsibility. It is this principle which underlies the long term strategy of corporate philanthropy and sponsorship which has been implemented under the programme NET4GAS Closer to Nature since 2007.

Presently, it is grown as a decorative plant also in gardens. It grows in the whole of the Czech Republic; however, it disappears gradually, which is why it has been designated an endangered species, protected by legislation. Trollius altissumus is a poisonous fern, but its toxicity disappears when dried.
