THE EU is supporting the interconnection of bicycle routes between the Czech Republic and Poland in the Semilsko region. The interconnection will be made from Jelení Hora in the Czech Republic to Szklarska Poreba in Poland. The Czech towns of Semily and Jelení Hora have obtained a subsidy of about €17,000 to cover costs for preparation of the project documentation, Czech media wrote.
The idea to construct the cycling route along the Jizera River in the northern part of the Czech Republic has been around for about 10 years old and tangible works started in 2003. Total costs of the 160 kilometre cycling route are estimated at hundreds of millions of Czech crowns. It will be part of the network of Greenways bicycle routes in the Czech Republic and neighbouring countries.
