Today I’d like to take you to a famous Cistercian monastery, Hohenfurth Abbey, located in Vyšší Brod, a small South Bohemia town close to the Austrian borders.
My today’s trip story is about South Bohemia mountains called Novohradské Hory in Czech and Freiwald (“Free Forest”) in German. This area is a perfect destination for the lovers of Nordic walking, cycling and classic walking as it offers many beautiful, diverse and well marked trails.
South Bohemia is a beautiful region for those in search of non-mainstream travel destinations. Aside from it’s famous Budweiser beer, South Bohemia’s primary attractions are it’s wonderful nature as well as a rich historic heritage. It’s a land of forest mountains and fields, small winding rivers and large old ponds built by masters of the Renaissance period (Rozmberk, the biggest world’s fishing pond, is here).
