Adršpach, Eastern Bohemia

Adršpach is a small village in the North Eastern part of Czech Republic bordering with Poland. We parked at the Adršpach-Teplice Rocks Nature preserve and paid to walk among these very unusual sandstone rocks. It did not disappoint us with the massive stones. You don’t need more than two hours to visit the park and youContinue reading “Adršpach, Eastern Bohemia”

Mariánské Lázně and Kynžvart, Western Czechia

Boží Dar, Northern Czechia

A bike ride around Boží Dar in Krušné hory became one of our favorite rides. In this very quiet area you will be riding through deep forests and lush meadows time to time touching borders of Germany. Passing other bike riders you would never know whether they would greet you “Ahoj” or “Guten tag”. QuiteContinue reading “Boží Dar, Northern Czechia”

Hrubý Jeseník, Moravia-Silesia

For the exploration of Hrubý Jeseník we selected the village Branná as our base. Our accommodation was in the castle Kolštejn (founded at 1325). The castle has a mix of gothic style but is mostly chateau like. It had gone through at least 14 different owners in 600 or so years. Both nights we hadContinue reading “Hrubý Jeseník, Moravia-Silesia”

Lednice, Southern Moravia

The village of Lednice is one of the most popular destinations in Southern Moravia. It is not permitted to bike through the beautiful park – with a small exception, which of course we utilized. This easy trip will lead you through relatively flat countryside at times following the meandering blind branches of the Dyje river.Continue reading “Lednice, Southern Moravia”
