A few days ago my friend Yana suggested to go on a hike (not by bus or train) to see some local sights. I wonder why we didn’t figure out of this earlier. Of course, every our trip (big or small) included many kilometers spent on feet, but it was just a means to an end. This time we simply wanted to enjoy the way. We’ve planned not so big route across 3 small cities near Moravský kras – from Křtiny through Rudice to Jedovnice and one warm Saturday (on 14th May) took to the road.
Main square in Křtiny greeted us with a funfair with local sweets, souvenirs and food. It was hard to resist the temptation not to buy a fruit jelly. Again.
Beautiful roman-catholic church of the name of the Virgin Mary in Křtiny, that was built in the beginning of the 18th century and now is one of the national cultural monuments in Czech Republic.
After sunny and noisy Křtiny we continued our walk to north west to a little village Rudice.
On the way to Rudice – a sand quarry near the village. This place looks like an another planet.
Local attractions: little church, village supermarket and an old windmill.
But the most exciting thing waited for us right “around corner” in a deep forest.
Unbelievable place – Rudické propadání.
One can easily call this place magical: moist cold air, stones fleeced with moss and a black hole in cliffs.
After a quick rest we came back to the route to Jedovnice, where lovely ducks on a lake waited for us.
Endless green fields.
This trip was the start of the new local travelling season full of new routes, places, acquaintancies and stories. Join us!
See you soon!
