Discover the landscape around Rosice by bike or on foot on the Permons’ Trail (Stezka Permoníků). Start from the railway station in the village of Zastávka by following the cycling route 5173. From here, wagons full of coal used to depart in order to supply the world, already during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, as it is only a few minutes from the Ferdinand Mine. Those who are fit can climb on the local mine dump, a hill of extracted gangue. Then continue to Babice and Zbýšov, past the Museum of Industrial Railways. Check out the dates and take a ride on a steam or diesel train with your kids! The mine dump in Zbýšov is famous for a fascinating view. And they have one more unique thing here – a technical monument, the mining tower of the Simson Mine, which is 24 metres high. At the turn of the century, miners in the Rosice-Oslavany Coalfield used to descend down to a depth of 1.5 kilometres under the Earth’s surface.
From the Permons’ Trail, a cosy recreational area near the former brickyard will take you to the green tourist trail. Rybičková Skála (Fish Rock), a natural monument, offers a breathtaking sight for its visitors. The rock “canvas” on a forty-meter section shows fossilized imprints of fish and plants. It is a real atlas of the Paleozoic Era!
Go through Neslovice and Kratochvilka, past the monument to the victims of World War II. and then turn right to the Nature Trail through the History of Rosice. Around the Chapel of the Holy Trinity and along the linden alley, the trail will take you to Rosice. Coal baron Rahn not only influenced the appearance of the local square, but if you walk through the village, you will also see his family tomb. What is not to miss? Rosice Chateau is a Renaissance pearl. Look up at the beautiful ceilings in the romantic halls or go down into an unusual anti-nuclear shelter under the chateau garden.
In mining times, one greeted another by wishing them good luck, so good luck to you on your journey, too!
