Do you enjoy long-distance trails? Are you going to do one of the six Via Czechia routes? Then pay attention! Along the way, you can collect significant peaks, save their visit in the Horobraní app and earn the Via Czechia Crown challenge.

About the challenge

The Via Czechia Crown is a list of significant peaks that the Via Czechia routes pass through. The total of 36 peaks from Sněžka to Říp includes mainly the highest points of individual geomorphological units, but the list also includes historically or otherwise significant hills and mountains, such as Říp, Velký Blaník or Svatý Hostýn. The vast majority of the peaks lie directly on the hiking trail, some of them require a short detour.

We are organizing the challenge together with the author of the Czech long-distance routes Via Czechia - Honza Hock, who is, among other things, an amazing photographer, world traveler, guide and author of many books. The Via Czechia Crown is not time-limited, the peaks visited from 1 April 2023 onwards count.

About the long-distance routes

The idea of the Via Czechia long-distance trails was born in 2019. Honza Hocek spent most of 2020 preparing, mapping, walking and cycling the first two routes - the Northern Trail and the Southern Trail. In the spring of 2022, two more trails were added to the network - the Mediterranean Trail and the Silesian Trail. Again based on thorough preparation and mapping in the field, searching for dead ends and finding beautiful and little-known places. At the end of 2022, the third longest route - the Central Trail - was created, and in spring 2023, the sixth and last route of the Bohemian-Moravian Trail, which runs along the historical border of Bohemia and Moravia. The network currently totals over 10,000 kilometres of routes for hikers, cyclists, skiers and paddlers - almost endless opportunities to explore the Czech landscape, nature, monuments and pilgrimage sites all year round and in different ways.
