Geopark Vysočina

A visit of the Kraj blanických rytířů National Geopark 

During the second weekend in March, the Vysočina Geopark visited another National Geopark in the Czech Republic, Geopark Kraj blanických rytířů. A visit of the Blaník House of nature was followed by the climb to the summit of the Blaník, the highest point of the region that gave name to the whole region and to the geopark itself. At the end of the trip, there was a voluntary climb to the observation tower at the top of the Blaník mountain.

The Kraj blanických rytířů Geopark was founded in 2014 and since that time several projects were implemented. Thanks to the trip the members of the Vysočina Geopark were inspired by seeing different ways how geotourism can be applied a few kilometres elsewhere.
