Traveling by the water has its charm, many world trails lead first by the water or the Mosquito. In a way, deep down a mountain inside the panoramic ridges, the roads lead through the least situated areas, along the bubbling rivers and the standing waters of the reservoir and ponds.

One such route that will take you around the most important rivers in all is the Mediterranean Trail. This long route from the system of hiking and pilgrimage routes Via Czechia connects the northernmost and southernmost point of the Czech Republic. The trail has a darkness of a hundred kilometers and options for cyclists. The route passes through the Vltava, Lunice, Szava or Plounice mines, you can walk along it around Mchova Lake, the Mastnek or Kokonskm mines with the Povka stream and lots of forest ponds.

And this is first interesting for vodkas or packrafting enthusiasts, because the well-known route can be taken on a boat. In the direction from south to north you can sail the Vltava from Vy Brod to the Czech Budjovice and on the Moscow kayaks you can continue for the Vltava cascade to Prague and then to Mlnko. The Lunice section between Tbor and Tn nad Vltavou can be sailed in the opposite direction.

The route of the daily link essentially follows the course of the Vltava, to the longest reaches of the river. On your pilgrimage, you can watch for a while how this gem is growing for me and with increasing flows. From the southernmost point it is a few hours to the Vltava in Vym Brod, from there you can continue along its rivers or climb to the knoe and sail one of our most beautiful water sections and to Borov near the Czech Budjovice.

For vodkas, this is probably the most interesting st. From Vy Brod to Borov, there are nine kilometers of pleasant sailing, which can be mastered in three or five days, depending on the pace. Pky this section between the other point and the Czech Budjovice can be conquered in three days and you will walk ninety kilometers. On the way, there are many gems, such as Romberk nad Vltavou Castle, Krumlov Castle, Zlat Koruna Cluster or one of the most beautiful ruins in other parts, Dv Kmen.

A view of the Cistercian abbey in Vym Brod, which was founded by the Romberks in the thirteenth century. The Vltava here is a hundred kilometers from the spring and not enough to meet the Elbe.

Romberk nad Vltavou is on one of the most beautiful water sections in the Czech Republic.

Under the Czech Budjovice, there is a long Vltava cascade with many dam lakes and stagnant water. Lovers of sea kayaks can go here and continue along the calm water to Tna nad Vltavou, where the Mediterranean trail will take you to the Lunice mine.

dol Lunice

Not far below Tn nad Vltavou, the confluence of the Vltava and the Lunic River and the towns are reminiscent of equal twins. While Lunice has 208 kilometers, the Vltava is only a kilometer above the confluence, exactly 222. The Vltava has a current here, but Lunice nad Vltavou has a surprising heat in the area of ​​the flood.

Lunice is one of our most important river and is the second longest tributary of the Vltava after Szav. From Tbora and to the Vltava flows through a deep forested valley, it is lined with ethnic glass. The river here is surrounded by spd and tee boulders, dammed in many towns by old weirs with historic mills. For vodkas, it is an easy two-day cut that even those who are able to do.

In 2019, the first certified tourist route in the Czech Republic was established in this area, the Lunice Mine Trail, which runs along this South Bohemian region for five hundred and five kilometers from Plan nad Lunic to Tna nad Vltavou. The destination area of ​​Toulava, which is a region stretching on the border between central and other towns in the center of Tbor, is most responsible for the creation of the trail.

The confluence of the Vltava and Lunice near Tna nad Vltavou. At the confluence there is a picturesque shrine of St. John of Nepomuk, who houses the Semeneck Chapel.

A lion hangs in the Lunice pod Bechyn mine. From Tbora and to the Vltava, Lunice crosses a deep wooded valley, it is lined with ethnic glass.

The Mediterranean trail runs in these stages parallel to this route between Tbor and Tn nad Vltavou. The character of the roads and the landscape is a completely unique weekday break in the Czech Republic.

The Lower Lunice Mine belongs to the physical effort on the Mediterranean Trail, without all the ascents it leads firmly along the sales pins along the course of the river and just leaves the mine and it comes out on the lookout to its edge. It is a leisurely walk in the beautiful South Bohemian countryside, where you will admire the castle ruins, the ancient mill and you will even walk through several visions of lions and one of the few tourist tunnels in the US. The trail can be walked in both directions, for most people it will be logical to go down the Lunice stream, ie firmly downhill.

In the footsteps of the Vltava raft

Behind Tbor, the Mediterranean Trail will cross the Jistebnická Highlands and behind the Sedlany, the Vltava River will once again approach. Stedn Povltav extends into the geomorphological area of ​​the Central Uplands and its landscape is typically a undulating relief, which passes approximately two hundred meters deep from the Vltava. The wild landscape is still neglected by tourists and the route offers countless peaceful excursions and magnificent Vltava views, such as Mj, the view of Abbot Zavoral or Albert’s Glass.

The connection with the water will remind you not only down the Mastnka, but also the old Vorask road, along which you will travel to Prague. The first way to return here, they left the springs of the Umavian Deva in Prague. This historical route has been abundant for almost a hundred years and barely noticeable.

The Vorai have been coming here since the fifteenth century, and if we accept the idea that they chose the natural and easiest way from Prague to the public, then the Mediterranean Trail also leads the time. In the area of ​​Stednho Povltav, this trail from Hostradice led through Krany, Teletn, Vysok jezdec and Nahoruby, and its remains are still visible as places on the road. Not far from Nahorub, at the turnoff to Krchleby, the Percule swimming pub, which had been dancing and operated, stood out until 1959.

Poszavsk trail

The trail leads through the middle of the route through a Mediterranean forested valley along the Szava, where you walk along the so-called Poszava Trail, one of the oldest marked hiking trails in the US. The Poszava Trail between Pikovice and the ampach is one of the most attractive sections for tourism in the vicinity of Prague. It was built by the Czechoslovak Tourist Club in Prague in 19191924.

Szava nad Pikovicemi. You can travel along the forested valley along the so-called Poszava Trail, one of the oldest marked hiking trails in the US.

If you want to sail, the lower Szava time from the Stone Pond to Pikovice is one of its most romantic and most popular. Leaders go on a full day cruise from Tnce nad Szavou and at the end of the day wash a canoe at the lion in Pikovice.

The largest flow of the Vltava in Davle, a former village in the village of Today, is popular with the entrance to the lower Poszava. Interesting is the island of St. Kilina with the remains of the oldest Muscovite clergy in the Czech lands, which was founded by the Boletus II. 999 above the confluence of the Szava and Vltava rivers.

After Dvokov road

The path through the Mediterranean passes through the main town, continuing beyond it to the north and to its lowest point, which is the confluence of the Vltava and the Elbe at Mlnka with a height of 156 meters above sea level.

It is possible to take a straight walk through Prague alternatively on a boat, take a look at the beauties of the city from a different perspective and try out the art of water on the local weirs (for more see Excuse me. Take two days to sail on the Vltava in Prague).

The trail through the Mediterranean leads through Doln Povltava in those stages for a total of seventy kilometers. The route copies the last few kilometers to the longest reaches of the Vltava River, from the course of which it runs away from interesting facts and prospects. From the northern edge of Prague in Trje, the dog Roztoky, Lev Hradec leads to Kralupy nad Vltavou. From here it continues along Dvokov road to Nelahozeves and for a long time through Veltrusy to Mlnka.

In the vicinity of Prague, Pecka in the middle of the Mediterranean is several times across the Vltava. Call the carriages, board them to another world. The first few days that the river will pass, we can forget about the present and see the world of the mainland.

Just before the confluence of the Vltava and the Elbe, the Vraany-Honsk canal departs a ten-kilometer-long Vranany-Honsk canal, which represents a safe passage for ships that can thus avoid difficult journeys on the last kilometers of the Vltava. The canal is used not only by freight companies and yachts, but also by leaders who set out from Vraany on a circuit along the Vltava to Mlnka and, after being picked up by the Honský lock, return by canal back to Vraan.

The city, which considers most people to be the confluence of the Elbe and Vltava rivers, is in fact the center of the Vrańsko-Honský canal to the Elbe. The actual confluence of our two longest rivers is about three hundred meters upstream of the Elbe and is accessible. For a better view of the fusion, you can climb the view in the church of St. Peter and Paul.

The Mediterranean trail connects the northernmost and southernmost points of the Czech Republic, passing through, among others, three protected landscape areas and twenty-three pilgrimage towns. The basic variant of the Mediterranean Trail is 569 kilometers and is divided into twenty-seven daily stages with an average length of twenty and twenty-five kilometers, always with the possibility of accommodation under the roof. The Mediterranean trail is also suitable for cycling, its cycling variant has a total of 547 kilometers and can be managed in about eight and ten days.
