Amerika Nature Reserve


Category: Points of Interest Region: Cheb, Františkovy Lázně and their surroundings Town: Františkovy Lázně


Amerika is a large breeding pond with a small island, located not far from Františkovy Lázně. The pond is a part of an extensive pond system spreading across the Amerika forest park. The island is the nesting area and a resting point during migration of a great variety of water birds, including many species classified as critically endangered in Europe. In addition, the whole locality is a natural biotope. The island along with a larger part of the pond has been, therefore, declared a nature reserve in 1990, covering an area of approximately 60 hectares.

The whole area with a network of well-maintained forest paths and resting areas serves as a place of relaxation for patients and visitors coming to Františkovy Lázně. The pond has a beach and boat rental and a romantic restaurant for excursionists was built on its shore in the style of framed houses typical for Cheb in 1898. The relaxing atmosphere is augmented by a small Zoo.
