Turn-by-turn directions

Around Vír Reservoir

Vír Reservoir is not intended for swimming, but its surroundings offer clean countryside and numerous views. The flooded valley of the Svratka river invites you to stop and rest. Your trip will begin in Dalečín near a castle, which was rebuilt in the Tyrolean style at the end of the 19th century and now serves as a municipal office. From the castle go right along cycle track 4025, cross the bridge over the river and at the following intersection turn left onto cycle track 5180. You will ascend to Písečná, where you turn left and come to Vítochov. Above Vitochov, you will find a Romanesque church, from which there are beautiful views of the landscape. You will also see a lookout tower at Karasín. Go down to the village where track 5218 joins, along which you will head to Karasín to the lookout tower of the same name. Head back to Vitochov and continue, turning right along cycle track 5218. You will then descend to the Vír reservoir. You will come to places where the village of Chudobín was located.Turn right and along the dam you will reach the Kobylí skála lookout and from there go further to the dam of the reservoir. The dam is 71 metres high and 390 metres long. Below the dam there is the town of Vír. Continue further and after the dam, go straight on along cycle track 4025 to Korouhvice. Past Korouhvice a steep ascent to Veselí begins, where you can see an evangelical tolerance prayer hall. From Veselí descend back to the starting point of your trip in Dalečín. You will still follow cycle track 4025. In Dalečín you can visit the castle ruins or see from outside the unique functionalist Jarošek villa.
