Greenways - Explore beauties of Czech Republic's places around Greenways

What are the Greenways?
Czech Greenways is a Czech civic organization founded shortly after 1989 by a group of Czech and American enthusiasts exploring ways to preserve the unique cultural and natural heritage of the Czech lands (see the intro).

Today Czech Greenways works under the auspices of a Czech environmental foundation – the Environmental Partnership for Central Europe, with the help of a US civic organization, Friends of Czech Greenways in New York. Czech Greenways was established as a sister project of the Hudson River Valley Greenway, New York.
The Vienna-Prague Greenways are a designated corridor of 100-year-old hiking trails stretching for 250 miles from Vienna to Prague along the Dyje River in Southern Moravia and the Vltava River Valley in Southern and Central Bohemia. It connects beautiful countryside with cultural monuments, historic towns and villages with restored castles and churches. Since much of the Czech Greenways stretches along the former Iron Curtain, where there was limited access and no development for 45 years, the countryside remains untouched and the environment clean.

Development of the Prague-Vienna route through the Czech Greenways is part of a broader purpose: to create a model for sustainable regional development, conservation of cultural and natural heritage, and promotion of local and regional identity (through low-impact, soft tourism activity).

Czech Greenways gives guidance and financial support to selected non-profit initiatives, projects of renewal or development, preservation of local heritage and nature conservation along the Vienna – Prague Greenways.

We at Greenways Travel Club, offer a wide range of guided and self-guided tours along
the Vienna – Prague Greenway, which are designed to give you a maximum degree of freedom, with independent choices of destination and means of travel.

Your reward is an intense cross-cultural experience, and a deeper knowledge of the land and its people than that provided by other tour operators and the usual mass tourism. As you get more aquainted with Central Europe, you will have the oportunity to talk to local people, and learn about their way of life and hopes for the future, a future which your personal participation in a Greenways tour will help to bring about. In doing so, you will help to solidify and strengthen these important ties of international friendship and common heritage.
