South Bohemia during Spring - Birds & some Culture
This short holiday explores south Bohemia, a region spreading along the upper Moldau river and bordering to German Bavarian forest. The south of the country will reveal a land of rolling hills, forests and lakes that has changed little in hundreds of years. Particular interest will be also paid to local history and architecture. Among other sights, we will pay a brief visit to Cesky Krumlov, the best preserved medieval town in the whole country.
Sumava Mountains are in fact a prolongation of Bavarian forest in the Czech Republic. It is not only larger than its German counterpart but has much more boreal appearance with many peatbogs and cold valleys, a home to trully northern bird species.
Trebon Basin, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, is an area of old fish ponds where we will also visit local brewery and famous fish restaurant. Many historical sights have been preserved in this part of the country. Our journey ends in Prague with an extension available for those who want to spend some more nights in this beautiful city.
