If you decide to spend an active holiday in the very west of Bohemia, we have tips for trips around and accommodation. One of these places is camping America near Františkovy Lázně. On one August day, we ride with children and bicycles clothed by cycling trains from a train at Cheb Train Station and drive about 12 km to our "base" camp, which is to be camping for the next few days on the shores of the same pond - America.
From the railway station we drive a beautiful historical center to the River Ohri. We walk through a park where various cultural actions are often taken upstream to the dam of the Skalka reservoir. We are passing by and pleasant asphalt through the natural monument of Komorní Hůrka we are approaching the goal. By the way - Komorní hůrka is our youngest volcano, which originated before 115 000 - 15 000 flights :-) Like sopra but not much. It's just a kind of round wooded top near the main road to Germany. From here it's a few miles to our dormitory. The pond near the camp is quite dirty from the cyanobacteria, which is multiplied by the heat, but it is not possible to say good-bye to the campsite. It is a clean, landscaped camp with a rich background. It is new, modern and offers accommodation in different price ranges according to type of accommodation. There are log cabins with their own soc. a small patio and a small patio the position of a tent or caravan.
We use the roof overhead in the form of a pidichatika at the back of the camp. There are nothing but two bunks against each other and a narrow aisle, so we have to keep the wheels locked in front of her. But it is enough to sleep. Next days, we use the camp's strategic location for many trips, which are also great for families with children. Which are they? The mini-zoo - the park America is located directly next to the sports grounds camp. Children and adults can find horses, lamas, ducks, snow owls and raccoons here.
If you go further in the direction to Františkovy Lázně, where you can walk about 2 km, you can enjoy not only this beautiful city, but also visit the modern Aquaforum Aquapark. This is really the advantage you will not find so close to other camps. Towards the pond along the pond there is the Nature Reserve America, which has the task of protecting the nest of rare birds on one of the islands of the pond. For this purpose, there is also a covered observatory with explanatory infotainments about local operetta.
On foot or by bike, you can ride the ponds of the nearby Poustka castle, known more as Seeberg. It is beautifully restored with interesting expositions and will certainly surprise you.
Another goal that is easily accessible from Camp America is the Butterfly House in the small village of Žirovice, east of Františkovy Lázně. In a quiet village you can see hundreds of magnificent butterflies in various tropical settings. It's a truly wonderful experience for both children and adults.
After visiting this attraction and buying souvenirs, you can dine in the village of Drahov near the village of Drahov. It is also a protected area with many old half-timbered buildings. And from here it is a bit further to the next miracle of this region of the Carlsbad Region - SOOS reservation, full of bubbling mud volcanoes and curative springs.
If you are still not tired of experiencing, you can come back to camp America "to arrive at one of the sports venues or a tasty meal in the restaurant at the reception. Despite the fact that this camp is a bit short of the city, we were surprised by the calm, the spa atmosphere and the great possibility of excursions around the area, including those to Germany. By bike, by foot, by train. Really ideal place for families with children or active tourists.
