Trip Around the World
The educational trail leads through scenery that is typical of the area around Třeboň, with fishponds, forests, fields and meadows, as well as authentic farmsteads. Along its 12-km length, there will be countless opportunities to watch both common and protected plants and animals, such as the bog arum (calla) and the Eurasian otter. Mindful of the many foreigners among Třeboň day-trippers, the creators of the info panels have provided English translations as well.
The original educational trail "Trip Around the World" was opened in 1985. In 2016, as part of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, the Třeboň chapter of the ČSOP fitted the trail with new panels, which instead of dozens of lines of bone-dry text, complex drawings and strictly didactic photos, feature witty, colourful and inspiring content that seeks to entertain as much as it seeks to educate. On your Trip Around the World, you may become inspired by numerous games, quizzes and suggestions for activities that one can try out right then and there. Who would have thought that the rhizome of cattail can be turned into a nutritious snack, or that blueberries can be used to paint a beautiful picture? That a blade of reed may serve well as a pen, and many of them together as roofing material? Do you like comics? If so, come and see for yourself that an educational trail is not merely a marked route for hiking, with some additional information slapped on, but that the trail can be a source of enjoyment and inspiration, as you open your mind and focus on your surroundings in the here and now.
