Since the Middle Ages Bohemia and Danube have been connected by the historic Golden Trail(Zlatá Stezka), which was named after the wealth it brought. The system of trails has stabilized in the form of three main branches: Prachatice, Vimperk and Kašperskohor. Follow today’s footpaths and discover the unique nature and unique sights of the “Green Roof of Europe”. I completed a a +110km section of the trail in the South Bohemian region of the Czech Republc. Below you will find a quick trailer/highlight video of the journey, and if you scroll even further you will find a guide video that shows you how to replicate this historic thru hike.
“It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.”
