Path through the nature park called
Strážnické Pomoraví (10 km)
Rideability: spring months
We begin in
Strážnice. We set out for the landing
place on the Bata-Canal (opposite
the Open-Air Museum of the Village of South-eastern Moravia). From
here, we take the left bank of the Bata-Canal and go to a small
bridge (1 km), then to Petrov along the
bike path No. 47. After

about flood-plain forest. At the forest road-fork (after 0, 5 km from the
board), we turn to the left to Petrov.
(The field road at the road-fork can lead you to the meanders of the
In front of a small bridge over the Bata-Canal, we turn to the left and
return to Strážnice. We can visit, however, the landing place in Petrov or
the local complex of famous wine cellars Plže – the Historical
reserve of folk architecture
Caution: If you set out on the trip in spring, be silent and do not enter
the gravel banks, which accommodate nests of birds at that time.
The nature park Strážnické Pomoraví with its meandering bed of the
Morava River belongs to unique natural sight. It is one of the last
parts of the river, which has not been straightened by civil reconstruction.
The area offers good conditions especially for birds (about 238 species, e.g.
white stork, grey heron or curlew). The holes in the banks prove the
presence of European beaver that has expanded to the Morava tributaries
Because of the nature safeguarding, the area has been declared for the
natural park and bird area Bzenecká Doubrava - Strážnické Pomoraví.
