The Blanik House of Nature
Not far from Krasovice, at the foot of the legendary Velky Blanik mountain, you can find the Blanik House of Nature. It presents visitors with the nature of the Blanik Protected Landscape Area and the national geopark entitled The Region of the Knights of Blanik, together with Blanik’s famous legend of the armies which are asleep inside the mountain. This house of nature was built in 2015 with financial support from the European Regional Development Fund as part of the Environment Operational Programme. It is operated by the branch of the Czech Union for Nature Conservation in Vlasim.
Visitors will find an exhibition on the natural, geological, cultural and historical points of interest of the Podblanicko region. They can learn about some natural habitat types in the area, and the plants and animals they are home to. The House presents an interesting look at the legend of the Knights of Blanik, one of whom will be the guide and symbol of the Blanik House of Nature. The house of nature offers children’s games as well as detailed information on the region.
