Scenic views, gemstones, the romantic valley of a trout river, churches, the Porta Coeli Convent and the Pernštejn Castle. And small breweries along the way, which will quench your thirst.
Start at the railway station in Tišnov and follow the Tišnovsko bike trail to the first magnificent stop. Here you can touch walls dating from the times of the Přemyslid family. The Porta Coeli Convent, also known as Heaven’s Gate, was founded in 1233 by the widow of King Otokar I of the Přemyslid dynasty. Not only is the convent a refuge of faith, you can also find a cosy café and the local brewery with a beer hall in it. A virtual tour of the church, which is not accessible to the public, is offered by the local Podhorácké Museum.
Continue towards Štěpánovice and Borač, where an historic arch bridge from 1910 can be found. The beautiful landscape around the banks of the Svratka River will guide you to Doubravník. If you are parched, you can look forward to local beer from Doubravník at the U Sedláčků restaurant. You can see the tomb of the Pernštejn and Mitrovský families situated in the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in this picturesque village. A large part of this sacred monument is built from the high-quality white marble which was mined for centuries in Nedvědice not far away. The functioning organ in the church represents a jewel of Baroque craftsmanship!
Join the Pernštejn nature trail and after a while you will admire the covered girder bridge near the village of Černvír. Built in 1718, it is a precious technical monument. The red tourist marking will lead you to the information centre in Nedvědice. Go inside, the silver coin treasures and historical marbleworking tools are worth it! The famous Pernštejn Castle is the highlight of the trip. This fairy-tale castle has appeared in over fifty films. Built in the Gothic style by the Lords of Pernštejn and modified in the spirit of Romanticism by the lords of Mitrov in the 19th and the 20th centuries, it is still an alluring and living witness to history.
