Transport - tourists
It is possible to get to NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days from two directions using marked tourist routes suitable for both walking and cycling. These routes lead straight through Poodří Protected Landscape Area, which offers a view of the meandring Odra river, ponds with many species of birds and extensive grassland with scattered trees. The area is unique for its conserved waterways where a large part of alluvial plain is flooded regularly every year.
If you plan to visit the Poodří Preserve during NATO Days in Ostrava & Czech Air Force Days, please keep in mind that you will be moving through naturally exceptionally rich area. Please respect the regulations effective in natural preserves – specifically a prohibition of entry with motor vehicles outside the roads, prohibition of making of fires and prohibition camping. We especially highlight a ban of entry for motor vehicles in the area of Pasečný most and Oderská lávka in Studénka, violators of which will be prosecuted.Please behave considerably towards the nature. On behalf of the Preserve’s Administration we thank you and we wish much uninterrupted enjoyment!
A trail marked yellow leads from the trail crossroads near Studénka train station across another crossroads at Odérská lávka straight to the village of Albrechtičky (together with the blue marked trail). The trail is approx. 4 km long.The yellow trail leads you through the Odra River valley across meadows to the Odra River, which you cross on so called Oderská lávka.
If you wish, you can digress from the planned trail and join the educational trail across the Kotvice natural reservation, which will give you information about this area and its value. You can watch water birds at ponds, a resting area for cormorants or heron nesting area. This trail to Nová Horka and then back to the Oderská lávka is 5 kilometres long.
