Nature in my city

I live in Dvůr Králové n/L, it is a highland, rolling and hilly area by a river Labe. Coniferous forests are typical for the region. My city is close to Krkonoše Mountains.

Near the house is a field and forest. In the field is grown oil seed rape or corn. Forest is mostly coniferous and there are most spruces and pines or some larches. Near the place where I live is a huge stream Kastbach, Podharťský pond and river Labe. When I go to the walk with my dog, I go to the forest around waterfalls on the stream Kastbach. There are many waterfalls, the largest is 7 meters high. It is called Sedmimetrák.
In my city is also something like meadows, people plant flowers next to the roads and they don’t cut the grass. The meadows are very beautiful.

Nature in mountains – there are mountains, valley, deep forests, virgin forest, streams, peat land, swamp, flowers and bushes (křoví) and trees (pines).


Nature in ČR – Landscape

Landscape in ČR is really varied. Bohemia is surrounded by mountains. Mountains are on the borders. Lowlands are around big rivers – Labe, Morava, Dyje. It is good for agriculture for growing crops. The longest river is Vltava. Vltava spring in Šumava mountains, flows throw Prague, finished in the Mělník and flows to the Labe. Mělník is confluence Labe and Vltava. Labe spring in the Krkonoše mountains and flows to the Germany. Other rivers are Orlice, Dyje, Odra, Otava, Sázava and Úpa. We have a lot of ponds in the Třeboň. The biggest pond is Rožumberk and ponds are created by a people. The biggest lakes is Black lake and Devil Lake and lakes are natural. Also we have so many dams for example Lipno, Orlík and Slapy. They were built to prevent floods, they are water supply (zásobárna vody) and they are water power stations which produce electricity. We have four national parks Krkonoše, Šumava, Podýjí and Czech Switzerland.
