Hi there! Welcome to my travel log. Usually, I don't take notes or keep a journal on my trips and travels. I rely completely on photos as they are self explanatory and are the best memory log. I hope you will enjoy them.

May 13, 2003 02:00 PM Cesky Krumlov Mansion Garden

Cesky Krumlov Mansion Garden After hiking about 20 minutes from the foot hill entrance we finally arrived at the Mansion Garden where the Cascade fountain is located. Not very far from this fountain lies the revolving auditorium where public performances are staged daily.

Touching the river water that flows into the Vltava River The river in the background shows the waters that will flow through Cesky Krumlov and other villages in the Southern Bohemia. It is also said that water from the Danube river which flows out into the Black Sea rises from the Black Forests of Czech Republic but I am not sure if any of the tributaries links to this river.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Signs of settlements within the Sumava

Signs of settlements within the Sumava Historically, before the park was declared as a protected area and its surrounding areas declared as protected landscapes, there were several settlements that were within the National Park. This structure is one of the signs left behind by early settlers in the 1930s and was abandoned during WWII. Most of the villagers moved to other areas and formed new villagers. One of the underlying ideas of a Protected landscape is not only preserving the area as a natural landscape (thereby controlling new development from encroaching) but to also preserve the traditional way of life adopted by the villagers.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Trekking in Sumava (National Park)

Trekking in Sumava (National Park) From the Peatbog Reserve, we continued tracking into the forest and found that the trees were relatively young, maybe about a decade or two old. This is obvious from the thickness of the bark and also the diameter of the tree trunks. The ranger explained that the trees were relatively new as they were part of a reforestation project that was started in the 1980s. As we journeyed deeper into the forest the trees were getting taller and wider in diameter, this indicated that we have reached the core area of Sumava.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Peatbog Forest Reserve, Sumava

Peatbog Forest Reserve, Sumava One of the most interesting sights to see is the wetland and peat bog forest reserve. Unfortunately, my arrival was greeted with rain and drizzle but I had to brace the cold weather and rain as I was half way in the forest. It was a great experience I think as it was probably a chance of a lifetime to go into this part of the reserve. Visitors are not allowed into the nursery where efforts are being made to restore the depleted peat bog forest which have been exploited in the last two decades. With the help of the game ranger being our escort and guide, we managed to step into this closed area and see for ourselves, up close, what peat bog looks like and how it is cultivated.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Kvilda Village

Kvilda Village Before jungle trekking I roamed around for a bit in the village and found several beautiful buildings. This church for example caught my attention, as the front portion is designed with wood coverings suggesting a highland or alpine influence but the back portion is all concrete and bricks. It presented an interesting contrast. Most of the other buildings had similar alpine influences including the Restaurant U krale Sumavy.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Roaming in Ceske Budejovice

Roaming in Ceske Budejovice On the third day of my visit to the Czech Republic, I decided to spend the afternoon to do some shopping and sightseeing in the town. There are many things to see such an old clock tower, a town square and many shops that were selling all kinds of things at very cheap prices. The exchange rate between the Euro and Crowns was very good and I managed to do quite a bit of shopping.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM Bistros in Ceske Budejovice

Bistros in Ceske Budejovice Restaurants and Bistros in the Czech simply serve the best foods. I am really impressed by the menu spread, portions and taste. Truly value for money. For just a few crowns, you could get deserts that would easily have cost three times more in the Western European Countries.

May 12, 2003 02:00 PM South Bohemian National Park

South Bohemian National Park We arrived late last night to Ceske Budejovice and spent the night in U Tri Lvu (Hotel of three Lions). Right after breakfast we took the bus to get to Kvilda village after passing by several other villages which are protected landscapes in the South Bohemia. Kvilda has a tourist information centre and gives visitors an introduction to the National park and the Different types of forest and wildlife that they have there. Here I was just embarking from the Info Centre after buying some nice postcards.

May 11, 2003 02:00 PM Schola Humanitas in Litvinov

Schola Humanitas in Litvinov

I visited this environmental school in Litvinov for a seminar on my way to Prague. This school's focus was to create awareness in children and the younger generation about the importance of enviromental conservation and protection. Courses provided are preparatory for their advanced studies at the University.
