It was fortunate for the nature around the Novohradske Mountains that people had little chance to change it in the last centure. This remote mountain range raises up to 1000 meters and German-speaking settlers lived there. However, after the WWII they were displaced. Moreover, the borderline regions became inaccessible. Once we omit the cruel thing of displacing former inhabitants, then nature benefited. Deep forests, clean air, nature untouched by the men. And still, after 25 years not many tourists have discovered this area, unlike Sumava.
