Route description:
  • If you go on a trip from Petrovice to the north, right at the beginning of the route you will be able to enjoy the view of the whole area from bird heights. An ascent to the Hodětín hill and even higher to the Kuníček lookout tower will take you to them. From the palm of your hand, you will also have villages with the charming names Kuní, Kuníček and Rybníček, where your next steps will go.
  • An untraditional, stone-carved, Stations of the Cross will lead you between these villages. You will immediately visit Týnčany, another Petrovice village, set in beautiful nature full of rare species of fauna and flora, as well as cave formations.
