Tips for trips – hiking and nature

The village of Březinalies in the Ochozskýpotokriver valley and beautiful forests and natural beauty can be found in its environs along with many hiking trails. Make sure to try the following:

Křtiny Valley

If you love hiking, wild mushrooms and sports, Křtiny Valley offers several regional and national cycling paths, educational nature trails and a dense network of marked hiking trails leading to the Moravian Karst, tothe Rudice swallow hole, where the water disappears underground, or to the mysteriousJosefovValley, where the same water once againbubbles up at Býčískála Cave. Other trails lead to the romantic ruins of the NovýHrad castle, which the Swedes conquered through subversion, to Rakovec Valley, to the Říčky Valley or to the Jedovnice fish ponds.


A charming natural space full of rare flora and fauna.

StaréZámky Fortress

This Slavic fortified settlement lies in the southern part of the Moravian Karst and offers a long history. It is a significant excavation site considered to be the predecessor to the city of Brno.

Moravian Karst Protected Landscape Area

One of the most beautiful karst regions in Central Europe is on your doorstep. Visit, for example, the lowest situated site in the Czech Republic, the Macocha Abyss or the Balcarka Cavewith its colourful stalactites.


The world-famous Macocha Abyss is more than 138 metres deep and is the largest gorge of its kind in the Czech Republic and in Central Europe. The upper part of the gorge is 174 metres long and 76 metres wide.

Punkva Caves

Punkva Caves are the most popular caves of the Moravian Karst. They are located about two kilometres from SkalníMlýn and they are accessible by the entrance in the wall of the Pustýžleb karst canyon. They attained their popularity thanks to the fact that they enable the visitor to reach the bottom of the Macocha Abyss while also taking a romantic cruise on the boats in the underground Punkva River. The most significant caves of the Moravian Karst open to the public welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.


BalcarkaCave lies in the northern part of the Moravia Karst in a picturesquepart of the Suchýžleb Valley nearby Ostrov u Macochy in a nature preserve called Balcarovaskála – Vintoky. It is an impressive labyrinth of corridors, domes and gorges decorated with rich and multi-faceted stalactite forms.

VýpustekCave system

The findings in these caves testify to their being settled as early as 1500 BC and they were also used heavily during both of the world wars.

Spring and Poklona roadside cross

The spring is a bit less than a kilometre from the Křtiny church in the direction of Adamov.

Publically-accessible Arboretum

You can find us between the towns of Křtiny andJedovnice. The area of the arboretum is 23 ha. It includes the meadows around the stream, the adjacent parts of the forested hills and a fish pond. The basic tour takes approximately 1 hour.

Veselice–Podvrší Observation Tower

This contemporary modern telecommunications tower was put into operation in August of the year 2001. From the platform the visitor is rewarded with a view of the entire Moravian Karst area as well as other more distant sites, such as the towers of the Dukovany power plant approximately 50 km away.

Alexandrova u AdamovaObservation Tower

The Alexandrovaobservation tower rises above the town ofAdamov, on a high forested hillside on the edge of theBabickáPlateau. In underwent reconstruction in 2007 whereupon it received new outdoor access stairs and an entirely new superstructure.


A tribute to foresters, LesnickýSlavín is located in the forests of Brno’s Mendel University. It is a set of monuments, plaques and wells dedicated not only to famous foresters and professors from the university who were responsible for the forests around Brno and their upkeep, but also to artists whose works were inspired by the forests and countryside.Most of the monuments are located in the area of Adamov andKřtiny, not only on the hiking paths, but also deep in the woods off such paths. The monuments and plaques mostly originated through the incentives of professors from Mendel University in order to honour the work of a specific forester or artist. Due to the number of monuments it is nearly impossible to name all of them, though the most visited include Mách’s monument on the old castle trail, the Stromy monument at the ŘícmaniceArboretum or the monument to the foresters tortured during the Second World War.

Radostnácesta hiking path

A short walking route was established in the nineties under the care of the Křtiny parsonage, leading along the forested slope of the Křtiny Hills, with several stops and interesting views of the church and the centre of town. The route is about two kilometres long and rises fifty metres.

Klostermann Well

The well, about three kilometres northwest from the centre of the town of Křtiny, was built in the 1920s in memory of the Šumava author KarelKlostermann. It offers a pleasant undemanding walk through the forest.On the way you will encounter a paddock with horses and goats on the edge of the hornbeam meadows. This trip can be combined with a visit to the KřtinyArboretum.

EightBřezina stops

A marked tourist trail that leads you to 8 local stops with information boards where you can read interesting information about the given area, the surrounding nature, landmarks and natural phenomena.

Caves in the vicinity

Březina citizen AloisŠevčíkdiscovered the Malý lesíkCave in 1949 by throwing a stone into a rock chimney. Under his direction it subsequently became the subject of long-term excavation research by the Březina group ZO ČSS 6-12 of Brno’s Speleological Club. Other caves that have been discovered in the area are calledVeskalce, Na technice, Tereza, Kulichovadíra andPonornýhrádek. These are small though important caves since they are connected with the hard to reach labyrinth of underground waters.


Located at the beginning of the Suchýžleb Valley, about 500 to the east of Skalnímlýn.It is part of the ancient outlet cave which is evident in the noticeable signs of flowing water and its erosion activities. KateřinskáCave was also a rich deposit of bones fromPleistoceneanimals, especially bears. It has been open to the public since 1910.

Sloup-Šošůvska Caves

The caves are located on the southern edge of the town of Sloupin the Sloup Valley (the beginning of the Suchýžleb Valley). It is part of the Amateur Caves system, which is the longest cave system in the Czech Republic. The Sloup-Šošůvska Caves are an extensive complex of domes, corridors and huge underground gorges created over two levels. EliščinaCave has excellent acoustics and thus it is occasionally used for chamber music concerts.
