The Dyje (Thaya in Austria) is an unique area in the whole region. This river has dug an impressive and winding gorge trough a ground mainly made of tough rocks, a surprising observation if we refer to the laws of erosion. Cliffs and rocks overlooking the bed of the river sometimes stand by more than 300m over the bed of the river.

Due to the fact this area was situated almost entirely within the buffer-zone during the cold war (Czechoslovakia was communist and Austria was then the eastermost democratic stronghold), the nature remained untouched, and pimeval forests host exceptional variety of animal and vegetal species. This fragility remained intact till nowadays thanks to both national park who nowadays work in close collaboration. Paradoxally, this wilderness was not obstructed as well by the existence of world-famous vintages, such as the Šobes vineyard, settled in the heart of the park and on a quasi-circular loop of the river.

The Dyje/Thaya is visited on foot as well as by bike, but only on few spots only, where many bike/pedestrian bridges were made for this purpose. But the river is also best seen from upside....

Brno, second largest city of Czech Republic, is the gateway to Southern Moravia. Until half-way in the direction of the Austrian border, the road is a dual carriageway that looks like a motorway (despite it is not one; the motorway vignette isn't needed on this portion). It stops just before the junction to Znojmo, where we go. Znojmo is also served from Vienna by another motorway leading to Hollabrunn (almost the border too).
