Nature

Třeboň region is one of the few protected landscape regions declared in lowlands after centuries of being cultivated by man. People contributed to forming the landscape ever since the 12th century, primarily by landscaping the waterlogged land, resulting in the network of manmade channels and numerous ponds. Almost 35% of the area of Třeboň region is made up of forest growth and 10% water.

Within the scope of the programme, " Man and Biosphere" Třeboň region is included in the biosphere reservations of UNESCO (since 1977). Within the Ramsar Convention, which is focussed on protection and sensible use of natural resources, two international bogs were declared here – the Třeboň region ponds since 1990 and the Třeboň region peat bogs since 1993.

The most valuable parts of Třeboň region are the small specially protected territories. In the category of national nature reserves, this includes the Old River, Red Marshlands, Ruda u Horusic, Velký and Malý Tisý, Brousek Mill and the pond Žofinka. Futhermore, it includes the national natural monument Vizír, the national natural monument Terčino Valley, the natural monument Slepičí Peak, the forest pond with a peat bog near Chlumu u Třeboně and 20 nature reservations (the flowering beech woods of Bukova Hill, the Dračice Stream, the Horní Lužnice Wold, the Horusická Marshlands, Krabonošská Wold, the Losí Marshland by Mirochova, meanders of the Lužnice River, Na Ivance Meadows, Novořecké Bogs, Olšina Pond by Přeseky, the sand dune by Vlkova, the Hovízna Peat Bog, the Pele Peat Bog, Rod Pond by Frahelže, Ruda Pond by Kojákovic, ponds by Vitmanova, Staré Lake, Široké Bog, Trpnouzské Bog, Rožmberk Pond and Záblatské Meadows) and five natural monuments (Kozí Peak, Lhota u Dynína, the sand dune by Dračice, Slepičí Peak and Soví Forest).

The territory includes a large number of biotopes, thus a significant number of various types of flora and fauna can be found here. In Třeboň region’s peat bogs, coniferous and deciduous forests and meadows you can find more than 100 species of protected flora, plus numerous rare and protected fauna (various species of butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, water birds, rare fish etc.).
