IC Svinná Lada

IS-S-Lada-budovaThis is a small, quiet facility, located close to the peat bog of Chalupská slať near the village of Borová Lada. It has been active since 1995 and was one of the first visitor and information centres of Šumava National Park.

The exhibit shows peatlands as a whole, enabling you to learn more about raised bogs, such as the fen of Tříjezerní slať, as well as about peatland meadows and wooded areas.



In 2011, the centre underwent extensive renovation. The new exhibit presents a Šumava peat bog. The showpieces can be ‘read' by any guest, including those with hearing, visual, and physical disabilities.
