Kladské rašeliny(moorland) National Nature Reserve

It is one of the oldest and largest nature reserves in the district of Karlovy Vary and the most valuable part of the Slavkovský les Protected Landscape Area. The site was declared a reserve protecting five peat bogs in the area surrounding the village of Kladská in 1933. The peat bogs were registered by the Ministry of Education and National Edification under the names: Glatzfilz (Kladské rašeliniště) – the present-day Tajga, Birkfilz (Březové rašeliniště) – the present-day Lysina, Zangfilz (Klestnaté rašeliniště) – the present-day Paterák, Gansenwaldfilz (Celolesní rašeliniště) – the present-day Malé rašeliniště, and Schachtwiesfilz (Rašeliniště šachetní louka, ) –the present-day Husí les or Husí filc.Natural scientists distinguish three types of peat bogs. The Kladská Peat Bogs are a unique complex of mountain raised bogs situated at elevations ranging from 800 to 930 metres with a total area of almost 300 hectares, the largest being the Tajga (Taiga). The Kladské rašeliny (Peat-bog) National Nature Reserve has been included in the network of Sites of European Community Significance since 2005.

More About Czech Republic

The Czech Republic is a cool little landlocked country south of Germany and Poland, with a national addiction to pork and beer. Potatos, cabbage, and dumplings are close behind them, and they also have this great bar food called "utopenec." It means "a drowned man," it's pickled sausage with onions, perfect with some dark wheat bread and beer. The Czech bread is legendary, like a meal all by itself.Czechoslovakia first became a sovereign state in 1918 when it declared independence from the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The state of Czechoslovakia lasted until the "Velvet Divorce" of 1993, which created Slovakia and the Czech Republic.It was occupied by Germany in WWII but escaped major damage, unlike most other European cities. The nation's capital, Prague, retains some of Europe's most beautiful Baroque architecture as well as one of the largest medieval castle complexes still standing. The President of the Czech Republic has his offices in the Prague Castle even today.There was a coup d'etat in 1948 and Czechoslovakia fell under Soviet rule. For fifty years Czechoslovakia was a Socialist state under the USSR, subject to censorship, forced atheism and even the arrest of jazz musicians!In 1989, communist police violently squashed a pro-democracy demonstration and pissed everybody off so bad that a revolution erupted over it, finally ending the Communist rule.The next twenty years saw rapid economic growth and westernization. Today in Prague you can eat at McDonald's or KFC, shop for snowboarding boots and go see a punk rock show.The Czech Republic took over the presidency of the European Union in January 2009. This instantly created lots of political drama because the President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus, is a renowned Euroskeptic.We anxiously await the outcome of "President Klaus vs. the Lisbon Treaty", a world heavywieght fight sceduled for spring 2009.Text by Steve Smith.
