Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.The area in the south of the Czech Republic between the towns of Jindrichuv Hradec, Dacice and Slavonice is called “Czech Canada”, due to its higher altitude and colder, yet healthy climate. The forested hills interspersed with meadows and pastures are typical for the landscape of Czech Canada, as well as many ponds and lakes. Czech Canada is one of the most attractive tourist areas in the Czech Republic above all but not only due to its scenic landscape. The forests and meadows offer an almost unlimited network of marked and unmarked hiking and cycling routes and the ponds and lakes invite to bathing and water sports. If you like to pick blackberries or mushrooms, you have foud the right place here! Due to its large forests characteristics with ponds, creeks, rocks and solitary stones, the area of Czech Canada offers the best possibilities for orienteering. You will surely enjoy the pond Zvůle near the competition center, renowened for its picturesque setting in the middle of the forests and for its clean water. Czech Canada is also a region with rich history. You can choose between Jindřichův Hradec (20 km) – the district capital founded in the 12th century with its beautiful historical center, renaissance castle and many museums and restaurants, Dačice (20 km) – a small town dating from the 12th century is renowned for its, baroque monastery and empire castle and a birthplace of the sugar cube, Slavonice (25 km) – a small, yet one of the most valuable renaissance towns of the Czech Republic, Landštejn (12 km) – remains of one of the most important border castles of the former Bohemian kingdom built in the 13th century.
