This autumn EuroVelo 4 – Central Europe Route received new signposting and promotion in Prague and the Vysočina region of Czechia. It is the longest of the four EuroVelo routes in the Czech Republic at over 900 kilometres (almost a quarter of the route’s entire length).

During this year’s European Mobility Week, which took place from the 20th until the 21st September, two bicycle rides were organised for the public along EuroVelo 4 by Nadace Partnerství and the city of Prague. Despite the fact, that only 1% of the routes’ entire length of 4,000 km leads the cyclists through Prague, the route offers a spectacular tour along the Berounka and Vltava rivers. It leads cyclists right through the historic centre of one of the most beautiful cities in the world – the Golden City of Prague. One of the highlights of the public bicycle rides was a section that led the cyclists on top of a covered subway line in Prague. Apart from the new EuroVelo signposting, a new detailed map of the Central Europe Route in the Prague region was published and a video on the Prague section of the EuroVelo 4 route was launched.

Between Czechia’s borders with Germany and Poland, EuroVelo 4 follows amazing rivers like the Ohře (Eger), Berounka, Vltava (Moldau), Labe (Elbe), Svratka, Morava, Bečva and Odra (Oder) and connects historic towns and regional capitals like Cheb (Eger), Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Prague (UNESCO site), Kolín, Kutná Hora (UNESCO site), Žďár n.S. (UNESCO site), Brno (UNESCO site), Uherské Hradiště, Kroměříž (UNESCO site) and Ostrava with each other. Thanks to the work and collaboration of relevant Czech regions, the route has already been signposted with EuroVelo signs in Carlsbad, Central Bohemia, Prague, Vysočina (Bohemian Moravian Highlands) and the South Moravia regions.
