The Moravian Karst (Czech: Moravský kras) is a karst landscape and protected nature reserve to the north of Brno in the eastern part of the Czech Republic, located near the town of Blansko. It encompasses a number of notable geological features, including roughly 1100 caverns and gorges and covers an area of roughly 92 km².[1] Currently, four of the cave systems (Punkva Caves, Balcarka Cave, Kateřinská Cave, and Sloupsko-šošůvské Cave) are open for public tours and exploration.

This region is also home to one of the most important single geological features in the Czech Republic, the Macocha Abyss, a gorge 138 m deep, which was formed when the ceiling of an underground cave chamber collapsed. Macocha Abyss is also the place where the Punkva River begins to run underground through the Punkvení cave system, and two small pools of water are visible at the surface.

The Moravian Karst is a popular tourist attraction in the local area, and large numbers of tourists visit in the summer months. In addition to caverns, the nature preserve also contains well-marked bicycle trails and hiking paths to explore. (wikipedia.org)

Брали в июле Toyota GT86 для поездки в Германию. Остались очень довольны, тем более, цена для такой машине была очень дешевая, общением с компанией тоже довольны. Если будем еще в Праги, машину будем брать только у них
I booked here new Toyota Avensis at September 2017. Nice, clean, spacious car, good conditions, very fast service. It was 30 minutes after the order by phone and delivery the car to the hotel. The price is the better than in SIxt or Hertz. Good luck RUNWELL.
