Valley of Springs

This short educational trail leads visitors into a quiet side-valley of the “Modřanská rokle” ravine, where five springs come to the surface, each of which has been enhanced in various ways and given its own unique name.

As part of the NET4GAS Closer to Nature programme, the local ČSOP chapter GEO cleaned up and canopied these springs in 2015, and installed three information panels along the trail, which tells visitors about the local history, hydrogeology and animal and plant life. It is a noteworthy curiosity that the water from one of the local wellsprings contains about as much calcium, magnesium and CO2 as the Mattoni mineral water. 

The springs in the valley are visited by forest game: boars and roe deer, but also by numerous birds. Birdwatchers may, for example, chance upon the Great Spotted Woodpecker, the Common Chiffchaff, the Eurasian Blackcap, and on rare occasions, the Tawny Owl. The location is rich in snails and beetles. The shallow temporary ponds in the lower part of the valley are preferred spots among frogs: the Edible Frog and the Common Toad.
