In the footsteps of scouts, hikers and mining spirits.
Distance 98.2 km
In the length of 250 km, the Sázava cycle route winds from the source of the Sázava River in Vysočina to its mouth into the Vltava River below Prague. Although Posázaví is a typical term for Central Bohemia, the river leaves its long trail precisely in its spring area of Vysočina, where the upper part of its flow strings the famous towns of Žďár, Přibyslav, Havlíčkův Brod, Světlá and Ledeč. Even legendary Posázaví stories, such as Foglar's Boys from Beaver River and their Sun Bay or the tramp-famous Creatures, belong to the landscape of the Vysočina. Sázava is at the beginning not that famous river, but first a small stream and then a romantic meandering river in a valley full of history, castles, chateaux, mills and village solitude and also whole towns. Paddlers settle on its surface first on the rapids of Stvořidla, and when it is too dry, it is under the rocks of Ledeč Castle. The tramps, of course, know it all along the stream, although they prefer a part little bit away from the Stvořidel. Between Světlá and Čerčany near Benešov can be found through the valley of the river winding monorail railway, electrically fitting called Posázavský pacific. What about bikers? Take a ride to the Posázavské wandering - from the Žďár Hills. The truth is that the valley is not always passable for the bike and has retained its pedestrian character. Bikers can expect more interesting places in the wider surroundings of the river. Our tip for a multi-day tour is to choose from 100 km of the upper parts of the Posázavská cycling route from Žďár to Zruč and we take you to a meeting with the “less known” Posázaví. The whole route can be divided either after 33 km sections for 3 days with overnight accommodation in Havlíčkův Brod and at Stvořidla, or for 2 days and you can cut it in Světlá nad Sázavou.
