Havranice Heath (Havranické vřesoviště) is a fragile ecosystem of dwarf vegetation on sandy grounds and granitic outcrops, on the edge of the Podyjí national park.
It is strewn by a network of bike-friendly pathes, that extend from the town of Znojomo till the Austrian border.
The most beautiful spot is certainly the cul-de-sac trail that leads to the rocky viewpoint named "Sealsfieldův kámen" (Sealsfield stone), named after Charles Sealsfield.

The map shows an example of what can be ridden, but the area is full of possible variations.
Just remember that trails not marked as suitable for biking (purple lines), especially steep ones in the neighbourhood of the river, shouldn't be attempted with a bike.

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).
