PODYJÍ / THAYATAL - DYJE VALLEY NATIONAL PARK

PODYJÍ / THAYATAL - DYJE VALLEY NATIONAL PARK

- Virgin nature on the outskirts of the city -
The smallest national park of the Czech Republic, situated along the Austro-Moravian border, occupies an area of 63 square kilometres. It was declared in 1991 and in 2000 it conjoined with the Thayatal National Park on the Lower-Austrian side of the Dyje Valley to form a bilateral national park territory. The Dyje River and its deep-cut meandering canyon are the natural axis of this national park. In history, until World War Two, human activities in the valley were limited to a few watermills and secluded dwellings (except for the Austrian town of Hardegg). After 1948 and the formation of the Iron Curtain this whole border region became a no man’s land as the communist regime would not allow anybody to use this wild piece of country as a suitable crossing point to emigrate to the West. On the other hand, this state of things led to preservation and even greater authenticity of virgin nature in the Dyje Valley. Most of the park area is forested with oak and hornbeam trees. The valley itself features mighty granite rocks, “seas of stone” (scree slopes), deep-cut ravines and dales of the Dyje’s tributaries where plenty of rare flora and fauna species thrive. The eastern entrance gate to the park is naturally Znojmo, while in the west it is the romantic town of Vranov nad Dyjí (Frain a.d. Thaya). In the heart of the national park lies hidden Hardegg, the picturesque smallest town in Austria, boasting one of the oldest castles in the Dyje Valley. Cycling and hiking access to the park is allowed via marked routes and trails.
