Soos Nature Reserve


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


There is no other place like the Soos Nature Reserve (located north of Františkovy Lázně) in Central Europe. It is a unique relic of a salt lake which turned into peat bogs and mineral salt marshes. You will find traces of volcanic activity here, illustrated by the mofettes – mud volcanoes emitting pure carbon dioxide, as well as by numerous mineral springs. We find a number of protected animals and wetland plants or halophytes in its many extraordinary biotopes.

There is also a geology park, a museum with natural history and paleontological exhibits, a display of life-sized pre-historical reptiles, an exhibition called “Avian World of the Cheb Region” and a fallow-deer preserve. 

A nature trail with several instructional stops leads through the Soos Nature Reserve. More >>
