 Stožec - Stožec lies in the valley of the Studená Vltava River. Nearby the Stožecké Rock is the Pilgrimage Chapel of Our Lady. Today it is a well-known tourist destination. On the southern side of the Stožecké Rocks there is a nature reserve with the original spruce fir spruce.
 Nové Údolí - Nové Údolí is one of the most beautiful places in the Czech Republic. There used to be a busy border village here, but today, except for one cottage, you will find only the former customs office for pedestrians and a small romantic railway station. In the tourist season, you can ride a replica of a steam locomotive and receive a commemorative ticket. There are also three historic railway wagons in the area where you can find other attractions - such as the Museum of Pošumavské železnice (railway) with a unique collection of contemporary photographs of the former Haidmühle station and other attractions.
 U Rosenauerovy nádrže - Residues of the Rosenauer water reservoir are surrounded by spruce forests. It was here that the entire route of the original waterworks - the Schwarzenberg Canal - began to unfold.
 Schwarzenberský horní portál tunelu (The Schwarzenberg Upper Portal of the Tunnel) - The Schwarzenberg Canal is an extraordinary technical monument of South Bohemia. The water canal connects one of the tributaries of the Cold Vltava River and the Austrian river Mühl, the Danube inlet. The channel’s length is 44 km. At the bottom end (now in the village of Jelení), the tunnel ends with Neo-Renaissance granite portal, at the upper end the tunnel is closed by a Neo-Gothic portal. On the lower portal the year 1823 is carved, which is the year of completion of the whole work.
