Hello Discoverers,

 

let’s take advantage of the long weekend at the end of September and explore further from Prague!

 

We will head to one of the most beautiful places in the Czech Republic – the Podyjí/Thayatal National Park in south Moravia on the border with Austria.

 

The river Dyje, in Austria called Thaya, forms here a 42 km/26 miles long and up to 220 meters/720 ft deep canyon which hosts an amazing diversity of flora and fauna as well as a few medieval castles.

 

The Czech side of the river was for 40 years hidden behind the Iron Curtain and off-limits for everyone but border patrols.

 

After the end of the Cold War, the uniqueness of this area was immediately recognised and in 1991 the Podyjí National Park was declared. In 2000 the same status was given to the Austrian side of the Dyje river – Thayatal (The Thaya Valley) creating the Inter-National Park Podyjí/Thayatal.

 

 

Join a small group of max. 12 friendly people and explore this special place! Our base for exploring both National Parks will be Znojmo – a beautiful historic city in a picturesque setting above the Dyje River.
