National Parks within the Czech Republic. There are currently four:
– Bohemian Switzerland National Park.
– Podyji National Park.
– Sumava National Park and protected Landscape Area.
– Krkonose National Park.
Located in these parks are unique ecosystems that have not been greatly impacted or affected by human activity.

Bohemian Switzerland National Park was established in 2000, although part of the region had been a protected area as early as 1972. Located on the right side of the Elbe River, this is the youngest national park in the Czech Republic. It is home to Europe’s largest sandstone arch, which is 16m (52 ft) high and 8m (26 ft) wide as well as an ancient mountain realm that attracts climbers to the park.

  1. I do not know too much about the Czech Republic. As a person who prefers the outdoors, and exploring nature, I found this post extremely informative.
    I am so happy that there are protected areas, and was very pleasantly surprised how big an area is protected (love how you did the map)
    Thank you so much for sharing this. The pictures are really beautiful! 🙂
