Sumava is beautiful but stay away from Turnerova chata. Prices are high and quality of food is rally poor. Ice cream is OK.

Place, where my daughters started to bike for longer distances. Villages like Kvilda,Modrava,Srni ,Antygl - are definitely worth visit. Easy asphalt paths make the most parts of Sumava accessible also for wheelchairs or bikers with children carriages.

Hi! I'm going to visit Southern Bohemia this summer. If I wanted to visit the highest or one of the high mountain tops in Šumava national park, which one would you recommend? The chair lifts seem to be operating during the summer. What is the highest point in Šumava region, is it Klášterková Vendula - Horská Chata Pancíř? Also detailed, practical information about getting to a mountain with a great view is really appreciated. Just looking at a map wasn't very helpful, there seems to be a lot of lifts taking people to various peeks. I will be travelling by public transport and I'll be staying in České Budějovice.
