They can never get bored with the educational path and all the information that it presents, looking at boars wandering around the lake or waiting for deer, fallow, doe or fawn. They can never get bored with playing house in one of many huts and they can never get bored with the playground at the Obora Holedna. Although don’t be mistaken, this place is not for kids only. Adults will definitely spend great time hiking, Nordic walking, cycling or jogging around Holedna. All outdoor activities are allowed. Those, who live close by are lucky to have such a gem around the corner. For others I’ve got good news as well. You can use public transport or take a car.

The whole 327 ha terrain is surrounded by fence, that’s why there are only several points to access it.  

The entrance to the place with boars and playground can be found close to Stara Dalnice bus stop. Buses 50 and 52 stops here. There is also free parking for around 20 cars.
