Information for visitors
Interesting facts Ledeč nad Sázavou - Sluneční zátoka - Vilémovice + Back train
Embark on a journey from Horní Lidče (turn-off from Havličková Street), the local part of Ledče. If you are not in a hurry, stop in the city itself. You will come across a number of diverse attractions - the Šeptouchov forest park, caves, a museum, the castle grounds and a small summer house, a synagogue and much more.
You will cover the first kilometers after the red markings, the company will be made by the river Sázava and on the other bank by the leading track of the so-called "Posázavský pacifik". The whole trip takes place in mostly flat sections. You will drive all the way to the Sun Bay on a pleasant, unfrequented paved road. At the Pod Hájem signpost, leave the street of the same name and follow the road leading just around the river. After five hundred meters you will reach the bay. Today, a car camp and a memorial stand on the site.
You can get to the monument by climbing a short hill along an unmarked path. This will lead you to the yellow sign. After it, turn left, turn along the road and here you will find the monument. Yellow markings will take you to the end of the route. During it, you will cross the bridge over the river, then you will find yourself at a stop, from where it is possible to return to the starting point of the journey. If you still have time, go to Vilémovice to see the area of the local chateau with the chateau park. If this short trip would not be enough, you can go from the Sun Bay in the opposite direction - to the red markings and the signpost "Hospital in Háj". Follow the red sign around the river to Světlá nad Sázavou, or even further. You will find railway stops here "almost at every step", so it is not a problem to drive further. I recommend a stop at a place called "Na Stvořidlech" - the river here contains a large number of boulders and stones, so it resembles the Šumava Otter. The nature reserve of the same name is also connected to this section.
