The village lies in the middle part of the Moravian Karst, approx. 9 km from Blansko and 2 km from Jedovnice. The system of caves in Rudice subsidence - Býčí skála (Bull's rock) in the Moravian Karst is with it's lenght of more than 12 km the second longest in the Czech Republic. There is also the deepest underground gorge, it is 153 meters deep. The underground low of the Jedovnice stream is falling 86 meters down and has the highest waterfall in the Czech Republic, which is 35 meters high. Around the Rudice subsidence leads a 7 km long nature trail strating by the wind-mill in Rudice and ending in Jedovnice. There are 13 information panels lenghtwise the path. Through Rudice leads also a part of the European iron path, which is an international project. By the wind-mill you can seen one of the stops of this project. The wind-mill serves also as the information center and apart from that there is placed a museum of speleology, mineralogy, metallurgy and mining.

We have visited the quarry Seč, with it's amazing multicoloured sandstones. Then we went for a short walk over the nature trail (we didn't go very far, definitely not the whole 7 km) in the Rudice subsidence and finally we visited the wind-mill. See all the pictures.

It was a very nice autumn day.
