The original Sedláček's Path, which was established by the Czechoslovak Tourist Club to honour Professor August Sedláček, in 1928, led along the current of the Otava River close to its bank, all the 25 kilometres from Písek as far as the castle of Zvíkov. When the rocky valley of the river was flooded by the Orlík Dam in the early 1960s, a large part of the path disappeared. However, the phenomenon of Sedláček's Path was brought to life again and, at the same time, adapted to the present-day trend of bicycle tourism.
The main thing remains unchanged: the link between the once royal town and the castle of Zvíkov. Whether on foot or by bicycle, you will pass numerous treasures of nature, streams and vast water areas, places suitable for both bathing and taking photographs. And in the end, you will be rewarded by the pearl of the Czech Gothic architecture, the castle of Zvíkov, which was built by the King of Iron and Gold - Přemysl Otakar II.
This is a combined path pedestrians and cyclists with traffic in both directions.
