For the public
Territories managed by VLS
Six VLS forestry divisions (four in Bohemia and two in Moravia) belong to the most preserved forest localities not only in the Czech Republic, but also in the whole of Europe.
In Ralsko, the public is served by the Information Centre at Hradčanský Pond; another centre will be established upon the cancellation of the military district in 2016 in Brdy.
In Ralsku we have built at their own cost tens of kilometers of cycling routes. They are now on a number of Brdy, which is open to the public in early 2016.
Trail Jeřáb, the first nature trail VLS serve the public in Ralsku, while the fishermen's stronghold Olšina in Sumava you can find public exposure of the surroundings.
In canceled Újezdy you can find dozens of kilometers of trails. In areas where there is military training, with the marked trails you can move on weekends and holidays.
Hiking in our localities brings unique experiences from nature, which is not affected by intensive human activity. See below for a few recommendations.
Natural places of interest
51 specially protected areas, 39 special areas of conservation with the occurrence of rare plants and animals, nine out of 41 Czech special protection areas.
