Halštrov Forest  

Springs of Bílý HalštrovIf you turn left on the green-marked tourist path and continue on a sandy forest path, after about 300 metres, you will reach the springs of the Halštrov. The Bílý Halštrov River (English: White Elster, German: Weisse Elster) is as important for the Germans as the Vltava River is for the Czechs. The springs of the Halštrov may be found in the area between the villages of Výhledy and Dolní Paseky and even though the river on the territory of the Czech Republic is only 11 km long, its source area is a popular destination not only among locals but also particularly among German tourists. The valley around the Bílý Halštrov Stream offers ideal terrain for keen mountain-bikers. In 1898, the spring area was trimmed and a brick fountain was built. The significance of the Bílý Halštrov is evidenced by celebrations held at the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the building of the brick fountain in 1998, in which hundreds of people participated.
