Educational trails belong among popular tourist destinations as they are both educational and inspiring. There are about a hundred of them in the Czech Republic. In May 2012, the trail to Onen Svět (“the other world”) with its 66 km was officially proclaimed the longest educational trail in the CR.

This educational trail is convenient for everyone: adults and children, hikers and cyclists. It passes through the surrounding landscape with many places of interests including technical, cultural and historical monuments. The trail follows a marked tourist trail from Týn nad Vltavou (Map) through the valley of the Lužnice River, then passes  Bechyně (Map) towards Stádlecký Bridge (Map), where it turns in the direction of Milevsko (Map), and ends at the Onen Svět view tower near the village of Kovářov (Map).

It offers 31 new stops with 21 educational boards, 2 advertisement billboards, 26 resting areas and 18 interactive wooden boards. Thus, tourists will get information about local historical, cultural or natural places of interest along the way. The boards also provide information about the mysterious stories and legends connected with the region. 

The trail is easy to access and you can start your walk or leave the trail at any point in both directions.
