Where do we fly with our balloons?

Karlštejn

Karlštejn

Karlštejn – our home base – hides many more treasures than “just” Karlštejn. Since we know these lands like the back of our hands, we can offer you exceptional views. You will see Karlštejn, Žbrák and Točník, Brdy, vast forests and numerous quarries from unrepeatable angles. When the weather is on our side, you can also see the Říp Mountain and sometimes even Milešovka, Ještěd or the Trosky Castle. With wild animals running deep beneath the balloon, it is a perfect romance. After all, it attracts balloonists all the way from Slovakia.

Konopiště

Konopiště

Landscape with a number of landmarks. The most spectacular landmark is the Konopiště Castle, but if we focus on natural sights, our gaze will land upon the fabled mountain of Blaník and the meandering Sázava River. The landscape around Konopiště is quiet and peaceful. In addition to unforgettable views, it also offers plenty of space for landing thanks to the mild terrain. Local balloon flights are often made even more interesting by flights of sport airplanes from the local very active airport.

Plzeň

Plzeň

When you say Plzeň, most men start to drool over the thought of the most famous Czech beer, and perhaps they also think of the current results of one of the local sports teams. Do you feel that you know enough about Plzeň? A bird’s-eye view from the balloon basket will convince you that this region has much more to offer – webs of interweaving rivers, a mountain and the Radyně Castle, ruins of the oldest stone castle Přimda in the distance, all lined with endless deep forests. The Plzeň region will take your breath away.

Český ráj

Český ráj

When we take you up into the air over the Bohemian Paradise, you will understand that this land truly deserves its romantic name. Countless incredible sceneries will open up beneath you, lined with border mountain ranges and the Říp Mountain in sight. We won’t miss the local historical gem – the ruins of the Trosky Castle. Perhaps we will even meet other balloons, as many balloonists travel to see the idyllic Bohemian Paradise – and not just them - the region has also become popular among filmmakers. Do you remember the comedies “Jak dostat tatínka do polepšovny” or the fairy tale “Princ a Večernice”? They were filmed in the Bohemian Paradise.

České Budějivice / Hluboká nad Vltavou / Český Krumlov

České Budějivice / Hluboká nad Vltavou / Český Krumlov

Three pearls of the south, one better than the other. I leave the choice to our passengers, I won’t try to influence you in any way. For me personally, this is an area very close to my heart thanks to the dozens of beautiful memories. I have been visiting the area since 1994, flying here for the first time in 1988 as part of the Svazarm paramilitary organisation. If I was to briefly describe the landscape, I would mention the magical forests, glistening ponds and protruding mountain ranges. The nature in Šumava is one of my favorites, and I always look forward to flying here. It is more of a reward to me than a work duty.

Hradec Králové / Pardubice

Hradec Králové / Pardubice

Hradec Králové is a picturesque historical town near the gingerbread scented city of Pardubice. The local flat landscape of the Elbe lowlands offers balloonists the prized benefit of excellent visibility; from here we can see the Krkonoše Mountains and Sněžka, the queen of Czech mountains. You can also see the Kunětice Mountain and the sceneries of the Bohemian Paradise. This location offers great experiences for the entire crew. Passengers enjoy unprecedented visibility, and pilots savour steering balloons in the area.

Roudnice nad Labem

Roudnice nad Labem

Do you like old Czech legends and recent national history? Then you are going enjoy this flight! While the Říp mountains resemble a molehill or a hat from the ground, in the air they look like an island in the sea. You will only see its power and extraordinary nature when in the air. Ignore the industrial buildings in the close area and focus your eyes on the fortified Terezín fortress built by Emperor Joseph II and occupied by the Nazis during World War II, the Central Bohemian Uplands with its highest landmark Milešovka, and other gems.

Telč / Jihlava

Telč / Jihlava

If you’re interested in the wide panorama of Vysočina, I can take you there as well. We will float in the air above the local city representatives – Telč and Jihlava. After that, we will mostly see nature. The wavy landscape of Vysočina is dotted with forests, but it also offers a number of ideal and charming places for landing. Dress well, as the air over Vysočina is windier than elsewhere; the advantage of this is that the wind will carry us further.

Tábor

Tábor

Tábor is another place close to my heart. Years ago I learned to fly here, as Svazarm had established a “balloon reservation” for us here. To this day I like to return to the place of my ballooning origins and watch the changing sceneries. I will show you Lužnice River with boats and vast forests around. While I could fly over the Tábor area blindfolded, Příbram is a harder nut to crack. Not far from Příbram is the edge of the forests of Brdy, which is not a good place to get into. We will therefore head east from Příbram, above the Orlík dam, or vice versa, from the dam to Příbram. Aside from the hilly landscape, you most certainly won’t miss the nearby Temelín nuclear power plant. From a distance, its cooling towers sometimes resemble a volcano.
