We walked several thousand kilometers on roads, paths and trails in the southwest part of the Plzeň Region over the past three years of this project’s realization. We studied in detail and learned about the natural, cultural and historical attractions in the selected locations. This region charmed us with its special individual characteristics and a number of interesting touristic attractions. Despite this fact, this part of the Plzeň Region is still not a frequently visited part of the Czech Republic by tourists. That is why we placed the Health Tracks project into this locality and decided to interconnect the health aspects of movement in nature with getting to know the natural, cultural, historical and aesthetic values of this landscape. We believe that the use of Health Tracks will bring new visitors to this region. The visitor will get to know several natural and cultural attractions, which are definitely worth visiting, but will also get to know how to perform outdoor physical activity the most effective way to enhance his or her own health. Regular physical activity is the most effective and the most ecological tool for improving the quality of health for every age. During our wanderings along the Czech and German border, we realized that people moving in nature are much closer to each other and are willing to help each other regardless of language or nationality. Hiking and staying in nature are tools for deeper mutual understanding due the integration of the Czech Republic into the European Union between people of neighboring countries. Getting to know and perceiving the natural, cultural, historical and aesthetic values of landscapes, behaving carefully and protecting them, leads to knowing yourself deeper and also your own physical, mental and social qualities and possibilities. This inner cognition makes the feeling of connection between human and nature deeper and leads you to protect nature.
We wish all the Heath Tracks in Plzeň Region users a lot of pleasant moments spent exercising in this beautiful location!
Thanks to all, who helped us with practical advice, financial or moral support, to realize this project „Health Tracks in Plzeň Region“.
