Description

You can leave your car at Pension Rejviz, where there are two parking lots. There's not much else to park in Rejviz, so you won't have much choice.

i
Despite the fact that we recommend the route for strollers, it is advisable to use off-road strollers, not city strollers. The route to the Velke Mechove jezirko leads through a road, stones, roots, and a wooden walkway.

Then you will follow the yellow tourist sign and the Rejviz nature trail. You will walk along the road for a short time.

As soon as you reach the last hut, where the road ends and the forest path begins, we recommend going right up the hill. However, if you go straight ahead, you will also arrive at the Velke Mechove jezirko.

i
If you have an all-terrain stroller, you can handle the journey up the hill.

This route will take you around the top of U Pomniku (813 m above sea level). This peak is named after the Monument to the Fallen in the 1st World War, which is located nearby and around which the route leads.

You will then appear at the crossroads where the entrance to the reserve begins. You would get the route from the left side if you went straight ahead before the top of U Pomniku. And by this route, you will go on the return journey.

However, follow the blue tourist sign to the sidewalk. The route to the Velke Mechove jezirko leads all the way through a wooden walkway.

All around there are peat bogs, or swamps and mossy fields. You are in the Rejviz National Nature Reserve, which is the largest in Moravia and Silesia.

You are in the National Nature Reserve, so do not go outside the marked tourist signs and the wooden path.

Legend of an ancient Hun town in Rejviz

Once upon a time, there was a Hun town called Hunohrad, whose inhabitants were sinful. And so one day, the whole city fell into the local swamps as punishment. It is said that on cloudless days, when the sun illuminates the surface of the Mechove jezirko (Moss Lake) in Rejviz, it is said that it is still possible to see the walls and the tower of the local church in both moss lakes. Velke Mechove jezirko should also contain the treasure of this city, which is guarded by the mysterious figure of the shepherd Gill, to whom several local legends are attached.

Once you have enjoyed the view of the Lake, you will walk back the same way to the very entrance to the reserve. Here you will turn right towards the car park.
