CZ: From the Most Western to the Most Eastern Point of the Czech Republic 2
The easternmost place in the Czech Republic – the village of Bukovec
If you have a car, it is no problem to get as close as it can be. You have to drive from Jablukov to Bukovec border crossing. Right from the border crossing there is a green tourist trail leading uphill, which will take you to the Bukovec nature trail. Half a kilometer later you will find a maintained parking lot where is also “Raseliniste (reservation)”, a tourist signpost, and also the first infoboard of the nature trail leading to the easternmost in the Czech Republic which will welcome you in Bukovec.
There are seven stops on the trail that has half a kilometer in length. It introduce visitors to local nature and describes local nature, landscape and historical landmarks. Also, you will found yourself in the Natural Reservation of Bukovec – Olecky. The nature trail is well-maintained and tastefully equipped. There is a shelter in the middle where you can have a short rest.
On the end of the nature trail, which is in the middle of forest, there is a nice and interesting stone marking the easternmost point of the Czech Republic. Adjacent is a border stone No. I/12 with a memorial plaque that has exact GPS coordinates on it. You can rest in shelters even here for there are two. The small River Oleska creates even more pleasant atmosphere as it flows through here. Also, you may find a signpost with mileage to various places in the world. However, the westernmost point of our republic is missing here.
We consider this trip as one of the most interesting and we recommend it also to other adventure takers. Both places are located in the middle of pure nature, picturesque landscape and hilly terrain. Moreover, you will feel peaceful and calm atmosphere there.
