About the footpaths and museums
Welcome to the region dominated by gracefully rolling hills of the Hřebeč ridge. If you have some time, energy and will then you can accept our offer for short or longer trips through the Hřebeč area. For a careful observer the area offers impressive traces of extinct mining, as well as it shows marks of life in the Tertiary sea through which you can peek into the prehistoric life of nature.
Hugo, the dwarf, will guide you through the recent and ancient history of the landscape and buildings. The area with its mineral resources provided food to many generations of people living in the vicinity of the Hřebeč ridge. The mined resources were used not only locally (i.e. coal) but also gave the region a world reputation by the quality of the Hřebeč fireclay.
On the paths you will find information about regional geology. They may be well known to you or surprising, and you will learn about the historical conditions of creating a specific mining management in the vicinity. In small doses you will also gain an overview about other mined resources, about interesting technologies of mining and about an amazing technique used by our ancestors. The footpaths will guide you through a magnificent landscape. For that reason some of the information focuses on the importance of plant and animal guilds of the Hřebeč ridge.
While the unique and rare individuals are protected within the nature reservation of Rohová and the nature heritage Pod skalou, the Hřebeč nature is unique and charmful also behind the borders of these places. The museums mentioned in the name of our pages gives an opportunity to see rare exhibits of Mladějov industrial museum or the geological exhibition in the underground of the Moravská Třebová castle. This is not the only information trail on the Hřebeč ridge; as you will see in our internet offer there is also another one called Boršovský les (the Forest of Boršov).
