Travel Tip: Sumava National Park, the Green Heart of Europe

in travel •  2 years ago 

Dear Steemit friends and followers,

Welcome to another episode of my Travel Tip edition. Despite its small size of just 79,000 sq km (30,500 sq mi), the Czech Republic boasts of four beautiful national parks, the largest one of which being the Sumava National Park.

Located in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, along the border with Germany, the Sumava National Park received the status of a national park in 1991. One year earlier, in 1990, it was also proclaimed a protected biosphere reserve of UNESCO.

Established to conserve and protect the biodiversity and fragile ecosystems of the area, the Sumava National Park is also home to the most extensive continuous forest in Central Europe, which earned the park the nickname “Green Heart of Europe”.

Other natural features commonly found in the Sumava National Park are large peat bogs, crystal-clear glacial lakes and remnants of primeral forests.

There are many great hiking trails in the park, making it a very popular place among tourists, hikers and nature lovers from the Czech Republic as well as other countries (most notably Germany and Austria).

If you decide to explore the Sumava National Park on your next visit to the Czech Repubic, make sure to take some nice photos there and submit them in my daily Prague/Czech Republic photo challenge, I am sure they will be highly appreciated by our Steemit community of photographers :)

I was trying to get hold of you on, I think somebody is impersonating you there with the same handle. Because czechglobalhosts in asked me to send 10 SBD to poloniex. I am guessing that is not you and it is just a scam. Please confirm.

Hi! Absolutely not. I am not on I am on the vacation right now so do not have much time to look into int but would be great if you could send me more info at [email protected] so I can deal with it later. Thank you so much for reaching out to me. Tomas

Same thing just happened to me. I got a ping asking me to send 4 SBD

You are not on but you have homework to do man, remember me Tomas?

oh man now I understand everything
I have been fooled. :(
Sorry man for my rude words

Ok, I sent you an email. Maybe we should tell admins in to block that username or something.

I got the same. But I'll ignore. Drastic measures must be taken against these impersonators. Few weeks ago, someone did the same to me using the handle of @grumpycat

Its a fantastic nature locations in Czech. UNESCO called it world heritage. So cool calm place for relaxation. Also we can meditate there and then keep mind positive. I never heard Czech has nature breakers. So can keep nature cleverly. Thanks for inspire me Mr. Thomas.

There surely are many amazing natural spots and Sumava National Park is just one of many. Absolutely a great place to visit if you have extended period of time to spent in the Czech Republic. Tomas

The location looks very nice. I did not known it before I read your post.👍

No disrespect but kindly read the post. This is like the fifth time you are asking me which camera I am using to take the pictures while it is very clear form the post that the images are subscribed from the Shutterstock. As to my challenges that I post daily the work is credited to all the amazing photographers here on Steemit that I do support on daily basis. Please do not ask me ever again as I will consider this as a spam and will act accordingly. Tomas

I liked the style of photography and the choice of focused camera settings and clarity it's a really fantastic touch of the soul and mind

Amazing Sumava National Park. Outstanding photography. I think may anybody travel with fun and enjoyment.

If in my residence there is a Lauser Mountain National Park. Until now a place of research from world scientists.
