perfect for a short walk holiday Oct 19, 2008
The Sumava narodni park (national park) is a Unesco biosphere reserve in southern Bohemia. Together with the Bavarian forest it forms the largest forest area in central Europe. A big part of the area was off-limits to anyone but border guards during communist rule, so it has been preserved exceptionally well.

Today, the Sumava national park is easy to access and perfect for a short walking holiday. We took a train from Klatovy to Hamry and found a room above the local pub. The first day we hiked from Hamry to Spicak and then took a train back to Hamry. The next day we hiked from Hamry to Nyrsko, where our short but sweet trip ended.

Nature is very beautiful here, we went in autumn and the colours were stunning. Most of the trails were fairly well marked, though you should bring a map too. We did meet other walkers, especially as we got closer to Spicak, which is popular with German holidaymakers, but overall it was quiet.
