The town was founded embraced by the wide valley of the Otava River under the Svatobor ridge as early as the arrival of the Slavs. The wealth of Sušice brought mostly gold panning in the Otava and the Golden Path. But the most famous dry goods are undoubtedly Solo matches. The factory for their production was built in 1839 in the city and operated until 2008.
On the border of the Šumava Nature Park and the Kochánov Nature Park you can find a village called Javorná next to the main road from Klatovy to Železná Ruda. Stop for a moment at the local church of st. Anna with unique shingle towers or Javorna straight as a great base for walking and cycling around.
Susice is famous for its factory on matches production. Among the paddlers it is known for its camp. It is from there when many of them start their journey on the Otava river. Its locationa on the very border with Sumava National Park and Landscape Park Sumava makes it important for tourism.
A town near Castle Kasperk, well, actually below it, is a gem of Sumava. Right at the first sight many tourists fall in love with it. It is an ideal base camp for trips to the surroundings; either by walk or by bike.
Handsome decorating peaks of Sumava is the highest standing royal castle in Bohemia. Kasperk Castle seems unconquerable to many tourists even today when it is not necessary to defend against enemy attacks.
Klatovy city makes an important point for life in a relatively inhospitable region. Farther west, near the borded, is not enough work, so when you do not want there to farm as a farmer, you have to go to the city - for work, entertainment, shopping or knowledge.
A very pleasant welcoming we have got at City Hall, in the same pleasant city of Klatovy. Deputy Mayor and Chairman of the civic association of Klatovy Catacombs Václav Chroust stopped his work for a while and showed us a local town hall, cool mystical underground, but mainly a rich history of the city.
