The management of the Sumava National Park (NPS) has no objections to construction of a cableway that would link Nova Pec, south Bohemia, and Austrian Hochficht ski area. Such decision was reached after a long series of negotiations that lasted about 13 years.
According to Jiri Hulka, the Horni Plana mayor, the cost of Klapa-Reischelberg cableway building will be about CZK 200 million. Both Czech and foreign investors are eager to take part in implementation of this project.
It should be said that municipal authorities of towns situated on the Lipno Lake banks insisted on necessity of conscructing such a cableway for quite a period of time. The main reason is that such an object of infrastructure can successfully promote the region and charm more tourists into visiting it thus helping in overall development of the neighbourhood.
In summertime this cableway can function as means of transportation for tourists visiting Sumava National Park. It can provide a good way of travelling around the park while enjoying its pleasing views. Currently it is crutial to run a study in order to work out some solution considering both matters of environmeny protection and usability for visitors.
During the negotiations the representatives of municipalities in question and Sumava National Park administration also considered other means of transportation including electric railways and "green" buses.
Frantisek Krejci, the head of Sumava National Park administration, said: "We told ourselves that we will be jointly seeking the best variant for all, local inhabitants, businessmen and national park guests on the one hand, and nature protection on the other hand."
