Gain knowledge in Bystřice

As a starting point we will choose Bystřice nad Pernštejnem, which is an important starting point for hiking trails in Svratecká hornatina. In the lower part of the square there is the dominant early Gothic church of St. Vavřinec which was rebuilt in the Baroque style in 1699 and turned into a massive twin tower. In the old town hall there is a museum with local historical and mining exhibitions. From the square head down towards the river Bystřice, and join the long-distance cycle track EuroVelo4. At the Children and Youth Centre turn right onto Cibulkova Street. After about a kilometre, turn left onto the track with red tourist signs, on the way up the steep hill you go pasta fairy-tale alley, ten wooden fairy-tale creatures nestled among trees, and a miniature park– about 30 models of castles, monasteries andother monuments from the prosperous times ofthe 14th and 15th centuries. Go past the Edencentre, where you can visit an open-air museum of Highland village and an eco-pavilion. The centre offers an interactive and fun way to get acquainted with folk crafts and ecology. At the railway station leave the red tourist signs and cycle along the railway and past the airport to the road past the village of Domanínek, where you turn left onto the cycle track EuroVelo 4. It will take you up to the carpark at Domanínský pond. Here you cross the I/19 road and go to the pond where you can get refreshments and go for a swim in the summer. You continue along the yellow tourist route to Bohuňov and the Pletenice crossroads. Turn right onto the route with green tourist signs, go through Písečné town and reach Vítochov. Above the town there is an early Gothic rock church with Romanesque features which offers a beautiful view of the valley of the Svratka river. In Vítochov you join the 5180 cycle track leading back to Bysytřice nad Pernštejnem. At the beginning of the route, after less than a kilometre, turn toward the Karasín lookout tower, which also features a ski lift 450 m long.
